Introduction to Drawing for Botanical Illustration: August Session

This class explores drawing materials (papers and pencils), line quality and expressiveness as well as basic aids to drawing (types of rulers, compass and stencils). 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 appropriate to the season. 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. Instructor:  Hazel Buys
