Botanical art workshops at the magnificent Dundas Valley School of Art

Posted by Michael Best on March 26, 2015 0 Comments

Every community should have a facility like the Dundas Valley School of Art ('DVSA'). Housed in a magnificent 1836 red brick heritage building, DVSA is the centre of art for the Hamilton region of southern Ontario.

DVSA is an independent, not-for-profit art school established in 1964. It hosts a full slate of programs and activities for 4,200 students a year in its 27,000 square feet of studio space, library, community art gallery and loft. Now botanical art is coming to the DVSA.

Margaret Best has been retained to teach two botanical art workshops in July. A one-day workshop, An Introduction to Botanical Art, on the 7th of July and a two-day workshop, Introduction to Botanical Art - Observation and Drawing, on the 8th and 9th of July. The details can be found in the Adult Summer Classes section of the DVSA web site at

If you're going to be in the Ontario region this July, you'll be hard pressed to find a better combination of facility and botanical art teacher.
