Every Monday and Saturday, Brushwood Center is bustled with artists. Botanical art classes, from beginning to advanced level, are designed and taught by me, Heeyoung Kim. Since I started the program at Brushwood Center in 2011, it has grown steadily and strongly. And Brushwood Center has supported my program by hosting annual exhibit. With the results from the classes, we exhibit our works to the public at the end of the year. Despite Chicago's cold winter, we have attracted big crowd of art supporters, nature enthusiasts, avid gardeners and/or anyone who like to support art and Brushwood Center.  The followers are ever growing.

Brushwood Center is situated in pristine nature preserve, Ryerson Woods in Deerfield (Riverwoods), IL. It is home for may precious plants and animals. Read more about Brushwood Center at the website https://www.brushwoodcenter.org/About/AboutUs.html

This year, some of the participating botanical artists got in international juried botanical art exhibitions: Jane Sturgeon and Susie Williams to Filoli International Botanical Art Exhibition, and Claudia Lane to Out of Woods by American Society of Botanical Artists. Both of these exhibitions are prestigious and competitive, to which artists submit their best works from around the world. I am very proud of their achievements.  Last year, Susie Williams and Barbara Rose got in Filoli International Botanical Art Exhibit, and Ramiro Prudencio and Heeyoug Kim in the New York Horticultual Society / American Society of Botanical Art International Botanical Art exhibit. Claudia Lane's ink illustration was featured in the Journal of the American Society of Botanical Artists.
