Zoom Workshop: Botanicals for Tattoo Artists

Friday February 19: 3pm – 6pm EST

Sunday February 21: 3pm – 6pm EST

Instructors: Sam & Vern 

Cost: $85

Botanical Subject: Flowers we can easily find at a grocery store in February: Peruvian Lily (Alstroemeria) any color but white, Daisy-like flower, or Carnation 

Workshop Description: Tattoo artists: we made a class just for you! Gift yourself and a pal a Draw Botanical class and enjoy drawing from life on paper, together in a supportive community. Working from a live plant subject, we will practice the Draw Botanical techniques of creating attentive pencil drawings, and layering toning and color in colored pencil and watercolor. We’ll discuss applying these techniques to your botanical tattoos, and reference inspirational artworks from the 18th century to present. Hope to see you in the Zoom room soon!

Our workshops include a set of pre-recorded videos for you to watch as you prepare for class, as well as recordings of each workshop session, delivered via email. We encourage collaboration and community, and we strive to create a safe virtual environment for everyone to draw together. We provide live demonstrations on the first day of a workshop and constructive critique of your work on the second day. ALL of the registration and video material for this workshop is delivered to you via email. Please be sure to add info@drawbotanical.com to your email contacts so that you do not miss correspondence from us!
