ArtPlantae is a resource provider whose aim is to encourage an interest in plants, to make botany a more palatable subject, and to accomplish both through the use of drawing as a learning tool. Through its educational website, ArtPlantae connects artists, naturalists and educators so they can learn from each other and encourage an interest in plants in their own classrooms and creative projects. Also see ArtPlantae Books, a resource serving a community of artists, naturalists and educators pursuing interests in plant-based education, botanical illustration, environmental education and STEM/STEAM education. Visit ArtPlantae Books online at ArtPlantaeBooks.com or at Aurea Vista in historic downtown Riverside, CA (www.aureavista.com).
