Instructors: Vern and Sam
Recommended subject: tree with leaves, stem, and seed pod/nut/fruit (examples: oak leaves and acorns, pine branch and cone, dogwood leaf and fruit, etc)
Join us for a live online workshop! In this workshop, we will focus on composition: the arrangement of elements on a page. We will discuss the elements of composition, tips for botanical composition, and ways to plan your composition. We will use trees as our subject and gather several parts from the same tree: a branch, leaves, and fruit/seed pods/nuts. This way, we will have many parts from one plant to arrange on the paper in a way that tells a plant story.
If you are unable to attend a session, recordings will be provided.
