II Scientific Illustration Workshop at Borboletário

Science Illustration Workshop at the Borboletário – 2nd edition

Borboletário is the live butterfly house at the botanical garden of the University of Lisbon. For the second time it hosted a 4-day science illustration workshop developed and instructed by me. In this edition participants used watercolor as the illustration medium and, as in the first edition, participants had access to the Borboletário’s educational collection of pinned and live specimens of adult butterflies and caterpillars. After the workshop, participants’ illustrations were on display at the Museum of Natural History and Science for one month and the exhibition was received by the public with praise.
