Australian Flora Series: Myrtaceae with Dr Tanya Scharaschkin.

  • 4 May 2024
  • 5 May 2024
  • NatureArt Lab Studio, M16 Artspace, 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith, ACT

This two-day workshop provides botanical science insights to gain a comprehensive understanding of the family Mrytaceae with expert botanist Dr Tanya Scharaschkin.

The myrtle family (Myrtaceae) contains about 150 genera and 3,300 species of trees and shrubs. Its members are widely distributed in the tropics and characteristically feature leathery leaves with oil glands. The family includes Eucalyptus, Callistemon, Melaleuca and Myrtle among others. 

We will examine all aspects of Myrtaceae from structure and function to the ecology of the unique Australian members of this family. Learn how to use keys for identification. Individual parts will be drawn and labelled with botanical terms. During the second day of the workshop, participants will create beautiful drawings inspired by Myrtaceae specimens.  

We will be looking at a wide range of plant parts including flowers, buds and leaves.
