THIS CLASS IS FULL as of June 16, 2016. Please stay tuned for a future offering of this class.
Ethnobotanist Kathleen Harrison, assisted by Master Gardener/artist Paetra Tauchert, will help us look carefully at the form of our beloved plants, and then we will draw them realistically, with graphite pencils. Tools, paper and drawing boards are all provided for the class. You'll take home a finished drawing. Suggestions and examples offered for how to go to colored pencil or ink. This is a class for all levels, from beginner ("I love plants but I can't draw anything") to artistic types who want to hone the skill of representing plant forms as they really are. Come have fun perceiving nature!
Class size is maximum 15 participants. Bring your lunch if you wish, so we can sit outside and share our thoughts. Otherwise lunch can be bought in the village of Occidental.
