Come brighten these winter evenings by awakening plants in your artwork! Participants will learn observational drawing skills in graphite pencil to create lively botanical illustrations of leaves, plants, flowers, bulbs, funghi, fruits and more. Study botanical details to create accurate, expressive and graceful drawings. Each session includes a brief lecture on historical references and basic botany, step-by-step demonstrations of several illustration techniques, ample time for drawing to learn direct observation skills, as well as instructor feedback on individual work. Exercises taught in class will develop participants’ control of line, shading, texture and composition.
(Builds skills useful for any kind of drawing; suggested before taking Botanical Drawing in Colored Pencil, offered spring 2022.)
