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 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. There will be opportunities to work on large compositions and detailed paintings for those with more experience. Lessons in composition will be given to help with the development of larger compositions. We will also study historical botanical illustrations spanning four centuries of the extensive library collection as a way of understanding the tradition and techniques still in use today.
