Master classes offer students the opportunity to learn from renowned artists with national and international reputations.
Janet Rieck has devoted a great deal of time in recent years to the fine art of botanical illustration. Through an art form that requires mastering the use of watercolor as well as the detailed requirements of botanical illustration, she has discovered the wonderful world of plants and their form and growth. Her studies with Anne Marie Evans, a leading teacher of botanical illustration, have kindled in her a passion for the study and representation of plants. Janet has exhibited extensively. Her work was accepted by the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society in London for exhibitions in 2003 and 2007, and she received a Silver Gilt Medal each time. Her work has also been seen at the Hunt Botanical Exhibit at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh for the 2004-2005 exhibition. She won a “Best in Show” for her painting shown at the New York Botanical Society Exhibit in 2004. Learn more
