Join us outdoors for in-person educational photography workshops while exploring the diverse plant life and beautiful landscape of the newly opened Houston Botanic Garden. These community-driven workshops focus on photography as a means for creative expression and acquiring basic photography skills. No prior experience is necessary, and all levels of proficiency and camera types are welcome. Teens (16 years and older) and adults are welcome.

Registration through Houston Botanic Garden is required to participate in these workshops, and students are required to wear face masks for classes taking place indoors. Please see below for more information and to register.




Saturday, December 11th, 2 – 4pm: Botany and Cyanotypes: Learn about the historical botanical uses of cyanotypes, a camera-less form of photography also known as sun prints or blueprints, and create your own cyanotypes using various leaves and other natural elements.
