Colored pencil techniques such as blending, layering and rendering with botanicals are the subjects of this two-session class, designed for beginners. Marlene Boonstra, who is completing her diploma in botanical illustration from the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh in Scotland, will cover the fundamentals of drawing and color theory before teaching you how to apply these new skills to your own finished botanical illustration. The class provides the unique opportunity to access our conservatories after public hours to observe and render plants from real life. All materials provided.
First class is February 16, second part is February 23; both classes are from 5-7:30 pm.
