Workshop Description: Colored Pencil and Watercolor Pencil

Hours- 10am to 4pm on class days

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.

NTBG botanists and staff will be available to help with understanding Botany and other aspects of plants.
No previous drawing experience required during the first week of class.

Instructional classes will be conducted for 4 days each week from 10 am to 4pm on the premises at The National Tropical Botanical Garden. We have a large indoor/outdoor classroom for our use, with time to draw outside anywhere in the garden students wish. Students can arrive early and stay late if they want to each day. Optional Open Studio days may be available as well.

Instructor is available in the classroom and does daily demonstrations. There will be a drawing in the garden demonstration on a specified day to get students familiar with techniques used outside when drawing. On off-days, students are free to visit the island, relax at the beach or continue to draw in the garden classroom without instructor supervision.
