Wikipedia describes Botanical illustration as “the art of depicting the form, color, and details of plant species, frequently in watercolor paintings. They must be scientifically accurate but often also have an artistic component and may be printed with a botanical description in book, magazines, and other media or sold as a work of art. Often composed in consultation with a scientific author, their creation requires an understanding of plant morphology and access to specimens and references.” Attendees to this demonstration will learn about the supplies and the basic skills necessary to work in this art form. This demonstration is open to all who are interested in learning about Botanical Drawing. This demonstration is not suitable for young children. Please click to secure a spot in this class. Free to Participate. 

Time 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
