Program Information

Location: Most classes will take place at BRIT or at the FW Botanic Garden. Some classes and workshops will be taught off campus and/or may include field trips to other locations around North Central Texas.

Cost: Class tuition varies depending on the length of the class and materials needed. Please see the individual class listings for exact prices.

Who should attend: GROW Adult Ed classes are designed for adults 18 and older. Interested children 14 and older are invited to attend classes with a parent or guardian if both individuals purchase a seat. Please don't hesitate to contact Erin Starr White if you have any questions about this policy.

Helpful Tip: Since you never know where GROW Adult Ed might take you, we recommend that participants dress comfortably in clothes that are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor adventures. A sweater is recommended for air conditioned environments, and closed toe shoes are always a good idea. Please check individual class listings for any specific requirements and, as always, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at a GROW Adult Education class soon!

In this four-week course we will focus on four different Texas landscapes (Hill Country, West Texas desert, swamp, and the coast) and the plant life that inhabits each region. Participants will draw from photographs, live plants, and plant specimens from BRIT’s herbarium. We will learn basic drawing and watercolor skills, as well as some techniques to paint with acrylic. Each class will start with a brief lecture about the day’s subject followed by a live demonstration. You will leave each class with a beautiful scientific illustration of a Texas native plant. Materials not included, but a supply list is provided.
