Summertime Botanical Illustration
Botanical Dimensions Ethnbotany Library, Occidental Center for the Arts
Occidental, CA
Share this event:





Join us to spend a delicious day dropping in to deeply observe nature and to draw what you see. Paetra will lead us through making sketches, doing color studies, and then drawing a final piece. We will work in graphite and then add color using a limited palette of colored pencils. Paper, drawing boards, erasers and sharpeners will be provided for use during the class. Students will need to purchase their own colored pencils in advance (list provided upon registration). Working with a limited palette is the easiest way to really get to know your pencils and what they can do. You will take home a piece of your own art, some new skills, and deeper ways of seeing plants.

When:
Sunday, August 5, 2018. 10am-3pm

Where:
Class will be held in the remarkable Ethnobotany Library of Botanical Dimensions, surrounded by books of beautiful botanical illustrations and plant lore.  Located at the Occidental Center for the Arts, in West Sonoma County, at 3830 Doris Murphy Ct., Occidental, CA.

Who:
This class is appropriate for beginners and intermediate students, ages 14-101.
Maximum number of participants is 12.
