Hey all,

Just a reminder that applications are being taken for the 2004 GNSI Summer Workshop to be held at The Morton Arboretum, Lisle, Illinois August 9 - 13 and 16 - 20. Week one features Suzanne Wegener and Karen Johnson teaching the basics of traditional insect and botanical illustration in "Insects: Heroes and Villains". Week two features our beloved Frank Ippolito leading "The Forest for the Trees", in which participants will turn traditional drawings into digital masterpieces using Photoshop. Both workshops are certified for continuing education credit from the AMI (not AMA as noted on the website - my mistake). You may come to either or both weeks - we'd love to have you either way!

So just what is the Summer Workshop? It is a wonderful way to acquire or strengthen drawing and rendering techniques while meeting people from around the states - and the world, perhaps - who share the same passion for natural science illustration. The instructors are extremely accomplished, easily approachable folks who are very generous with their time and talents. You don't have to be a "professional" illustrator to attend - just someone who sincerely wants to learn some new stuff, discover some new tips and techniques and meet some great people.

For enrollment information and other goodies including a review of the 2003 Summer Workshop, please visit and click on the summer workshop link. If you are an educator, please encourage your students to consider the workshop. This year we are extremely fortunate to have two scholarships available each week thanks to the generosity of a couple of GNSI members.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me!
Thanks! Happy spring, everyone.
