Under the Microscope: Drawing Butterflies and Moths

  • Morton Arboretum 4100 Illinois Route 53 Lisle, IL 60532 (map)

Explore the world of butterflies and moths under the microscope.  See up close the intricacies of the scales on their wings, the complexity of their antennae and the beauty of their coloration.  Take notes and make sketches in your sketchbook so that you can accurately draw them later if you like.  We will be using specimens from the Arboretum’s and the instructor’s collections.
