Intro to Botanical Illustration and Perfumery

MM 0325 Mondays 7-9pm
START SEPTEMBER 10th

$35/class, $350/full course (11 weeks)

Join artist and perfumer Lindsey Márton O’Brien of Lumina Noctis
for a time of multifaceted creative exploration into the world of natu- ral perfumery, herbalism, and botanical art study! This course focuses
on the appreciation of the first-hand study of plants, resins, and
natural materials utilized in perfumery and herbal skincare through- out the ages. We will draw, paint, and learn about plants that have inspired perfumers from ancient to modern times, and create custom autumn-inspired natural perfumes, herbal scrubs, herbal facial serums, and scented holiday ornaments! In each class, we will cultivate an inspiring sketchbook of botanical appreciation, exercise techniques for encouraging lifelong artistic expression, and and learn tools for brainstorming your own unique perfume and herbal skincare recipes.


All classes will be held in a welcoming atmosphere with tea, as we nourish our creative souls with the revitalizing inspiration of autumn.
