Study the fundamentals of botanical drawing using the mediums of graphite pencil, colored pencils, watercolor pencils and watercolor. Drawing plants and flowers starts with observation. Under the supervision of Wendy Hollender and Veronica (Vern) Fannin, students will learn about plant structures and their importance through dissection and comparison. Students will create detailed botanical drawings and sketchbook pages of flowering plants, fruits and seedpods, working directly from the wide variety of tropical plants growing at NTBG.
No previous drawing experience required.
Our Drawing Workshops are designed to fit the needs of students of all levels. Workshops are a great way for beginners to receive lots of one-on-one instruction and feedback in a supportive environment. We recommend attending for as many days as possible; the more you immerse yourself, the deeper the learning experience. For the more experienced artist, workshops are a way to make time to focus, continue to advance your skills, and create more-detailed work.
Prerequisites are not required for this workshop, but if you want to gain confidence and build some foundational skills before attending, we recommend completing the Botanical Basics online program which you can read about here: https://drawbotanical.com/courses/.
