Join us for a course in botanical illustration and learn how to create beautiful drawings of plants, flowers and natural objects. We will begin with instructions in line, and tonal, dimensional drawing before moving on to colored pencil techniques. We will complete several dissections of plants to identify their key parts. Composition, color theory, and spatial relationships are some topics we will study.

Along with multiple exercise studies, students will have the opportunity to complete several finished compositions. Each class will include a discussion of a specific topic, a demonstration, exercise drawings, and time to work independently. I will check in regularly with each of you every week to provide individualized instruction as needed.
