We will study techniques of botanical drawing and the characteristics of working on a mid-tone Kraft paper allowing the opportunity to create shadows and highlights easily using colored pencils and watercolor pencils. We will create informal sketchbook pages learning about plants as we go. In these 4 sessions we will focus on foraging outside, finding subjects to draw in gardens, woods, and meadows. As the season progresses we can move into fruits, vegetables, seed pods, roots, and other plant components.
