FALL 2020

Botanical Drawing (REMOTE)

Come along for a visual exploration of the organic, imperfect charm of plants and flowers. Using simple drawing media and working from live specimens, we will create visual studies on paper. You will learn guided drawing techniques to develop an understanding of the shapes and forms that make up various plants and flowers and leave with an understanding of the basic principles that make a drawing beautiful and interesting and create a piece of their own botanical artwork. Basic drawing skills are a plus, but all levels are encouraged and welcomed. Materials will be provided. You may use your own sketchbook or paper.
