Help us to create an art exhibit within our Visitor’s Center. Students will have the opportunity to draw winter landscapes from within our greenhouse and put them on display.


Come to the Sawtooth Botanical Garden (SBG) in the winter months and discover a wonderland filled with artistic expression. Nature transforms this place into a landscape with variety that can be captured with pencil or paintbrush. Students will have the opportunity to observe winter from within the relative warmth of our greenhouse.

Ideal for any level art class, this experience will partner with a local artist who will talk about her/his experience and techniques for capturing or interpreting winter through art. This experience will culminate with a gallery in our Visitor’s Center displaying students’ work.
