Botanical Art – Learning How to Draw
A Six-Week Course: Fridays 10am – 1pm from January 15th to February 19th
If you have long held the desire to learn how to draw then this class is for you. And also, for those who simply wish to take their drawing skills to a higher level.
During this 6-week course, each student will engage in drawing plant specimens as they learn to recognize and create form by understanding the importance of structure, surface texture and light as “value”. Feel the magic of creating “value” as your flower drawing slowly emerges and comes to life with shape, form, depth and dimension.
