How can we better see and understand the natural world through drawing? In this interactive workshop, we combine close sensory observation of botanical specimens with the act of mindful drawing, working in a range of mediums and easily-accessible techniques. All specimens and art materials are included to make a series of diverse mixed-media drawings.
Whether you’re an experienced artist or are just starting out, this is an opportunity to create intimate artworks that reflect the rich natural environment that surrounds us, wherever we may be. We do a number of short studies to hone in on perception of line, form, and color, and synthesize techniques to produce unique framable pieces. No previous drawing experience is required, just a curiosity about exploring natural forms through close seeing and experimental markmaking.
We ship to the entire United States.
We do not ship outside of the United States.
Prior to the class, please have all of your specimens unwrapped and materials open.
