Biology for Botanical Artists
Although no longer considered formally to be members of the plant kingdom, fungi make fascinating subjects for botanical illustrators. Morning sessions help you learn to understand the structure of these distinctive organisms through lecture and observation under the guidance of botanist John Hayden. Students keep an illustrated study journal. Descriptive morphological terms and scientific names are discussed and used. Afternoons are devoted to creating line drawings and composing one scientific botanical plate under the guidance of Christine Drake. Emphasis is placed on observation, accurate representation of details, and labeling.
