The Botanical Art program has long been an essential part of Filoli’s mission to interpret and preserve the history of this country estate. Botanical Art combines the observational skills of a scientist with the sensibility of an artist. The result is a rendering of a plant that is both accurate and beautiful. Enrollment in the Botanical Art Certificate Program is optional – all classes are open to all students. However, some classes require prerequisites.
For the Class Catalog and details on the Certificate Program, please visit the Adult Classes Overview page.
Required Certificate Program Classes are listed through 2018.
Elective Classes are listed through May, 2018.
