Painting Fungi
with Margaret Saylor

Much of the mystery and intrigue surrounding mushrooms comes from the tiny kingdom on the forest floor that they inhabit. Join Margaret Saylor for a two-day painting fungi workshop to examine different types of fungi and mushrooms, then sketch, compose, and build a unique and accurate painting. Include secondary elements such as spiky grasses, brittle leaves, or satiny acorns to add interest to the composition while informing the viewer about the habitat of the selected mushroom. Concepts are taught through demonstrations and individual instruction. Students should have solid knowledge of botanical art and materials.
