A collaborative effort between
The City of Prichard Housing Authority
The Artists of the Mobile Botanical Gardens


We are excited to announce a new partnership with the Prichard Housing Authority that offers free art classes to students. Our botanical art instructor, Derek Norman, and MBG member and botanical art student, Sharon Patterson have been working with the students over the past couple of weeks to implement this “Pilot Program for Curious and Aspiring Artists”. The final session of this 6-week class will be held here at MBG and we hope to continue to grow this new and exciting program!

Thank you to Jesse Norwood, Special Programs Coordinator for PHA and former Mayor of Prichard, and to Derek Norman and Sharon Patterson for your enthusiasm and dedication! Photos courtesy of Theris D. Howard
