Develop skills in drawing wild West Coast plants and flowers from observation. Using various drawing materials such as graphite pencil, pen and ink, coloured pencil and watercolour pencil, students will explore basic drawing techniques of line drawing, shading, stippling, textural drawing, and more. While students can choose their own plants, the instructor will use wild plants from the West Coast Botanical, such as wild roses, oregon grapes, salals, ferns, cattails, and also leaves from trees, such as maple, cedar, and red alder.
The workshops are happening on Sundays in November on 8, 15, 22, 29 from 10AM – 1PM
COST $40/$60 (MEMBERS/NON-MEMBERS) Maximum 15 students. Register on Eventbrite.
