Introduction to Drawing
for Botanical Illustration

This class explores drawing materials (papers and pencils), line quality and expressiveness as well as basic aids to drawing (rulers, compass and other approaches to measurement). Students study the basics of proportion, perspective and composition in addition to simple approaches to rendering form with tone. The class works with botanical subjects supplied by the Garden. Students complete one or more drawing(s) of a simple botanical subject of their choice, practicing the core concepts taught in the class. Accuracy is emphasized as well as artistic expressiveness. A list of recommended materials is sent after registration. Lunch is on your own each day. Instructors: Hazel Buys and Claudette Baker
