Botanical Art Class: Crazy for the Red, White, and Blue!

A botanical art studio class designed for the student to create, during the six week class, a series of three individual botanical flower drawings/paintings. Each work will be inspired by a red, a white and a blue flower. And each student will have the opportunity to work in the medium of their choice. From graphite, colored pencil, gauache, watercolor, including English-dry brush to pen and colored inks. The resulting works will form the basis of an exhibition at the Mobile Museum of Art.

This is a class ideally suited for the beginning, intermediate and advanced student. For the beginner it is an opportunity to discover the therapeutic and aesthetic pleasures of drawing and painting from nature. And for the intermediate and advanced student an occasion to further advance their individual drawing and painting techniques across a palette of challenging colors.

For questions or concerns regarding the materials list do please email Derek Norman.
