SAVE $50 on GNSI Conference in Boulder - Only 3 Days Left

July 13-19, 2014: The Guild of Natural Science Illustrators meets in Boulder!

Albert Einstein once said, “The greatest scientists are always artists as well.” His observation was a good one. However, there is also a certain kind of visual artist—the scientific illustrator—who serves science by making the insights of scientists more accessible to others—by giving the creative artistry of scientists both form and beauty. Many of science’s top visual interpreters will be meeting in Boulder this July. If you love capturing nature on paper or with pixels, you may want to join them.  And what botanical artist doesn't love capturing nature on paper?
There are only 3 days left to benefit from the $50 Early Registration bonus. There are a lot of wonderful conference activities, including workshops, classes, lectures and field trips. AND, if you reviewed the site earlier, you'll find many new and helpful enhancements.

You don’t need to be a member to attend. But membership means an additional discount on registration (as much as $75 for the core conference). It so happens that a year's membership is as low as $75! The GNSI welcomes all who are interested in science art to become members."

Come and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow illustrators in a beautiful setting. The Conference is filled with presentations, workshops and field trips designed to inspire. Some concentrate on technique, with experts in drawing, painting, scratchboard, block printing, Photoshop, Illustrator, and digital devices sharing their expertise. Others focus on the gritty details of making a living in this challenging, but exciting career. With so many choices, participants can customize their learning experience under the inspirational setting of Boulder's Flatirons and modern CU campus.

Go to the Conference website : www.conf.gnsi.org for a great Schedule-at-a-Glance, to see the expanded information on each offering, and to register just in time to save $50. We look forward to seeing you there.
