Academy Certificate Students receive 15 Elective Credits upon submission and successful completion of the completed open book exam included in this program, plus submission of two bromeliad plant portraits in graphite, colored pencil, ink, watercolor, or in a medium of their choice. This program was written by John Beckner (1932-2011) for the Academy of Botanical Art. It discusses the structure of bromeliad plants and their flowers with suggestions for ways to illustrate and better understand these exciting plants. Mr. Beckner was a longtime Florida botanist, horticulturist, and environmental consultant. He was a commercial grower of Bromeliads and Orchids, staged many show exhibits, built gardens utilizing these plants, and did extensive field observations. His CV includes over 100 scientific and popular publications on his various interests. Mr. Beckner was fortunate to have known (and often worked with) many of the leading Bromeliad experts such as Mulford Foster, Lyman Smith, Bob Wilson, Harry Luther, Denis Cathcart, David Barry, Victoria Padilla, to name a few. He also worked extensively in herbaria and in the field with many prominent botanists. He taught short courses to full length academic courses. This fee does not include shipping expenses.
