Botanical Drawing workshop led by Julia Moore
An exciting early spring plant workshop in the gallery. Julia will lead us in studying spring botanicals. If the weather permits, we'll go on a plant walk by the river to gather plants to study.
Do you have a love for drawing and nature?
Come learn to observe and draw plants!
Illustrator Julia Moore will guide us through some drawing basics like shading/proportions as well as various ways of creating basic art materials from the natural world around you. Julia will also offer a basic plant identification introduction as well as field sketching skills such as flower pressing (to include plants in your sketchbook), observation techniques and more!
Some basic art materials from nature will be supplied beet/berry juice ink, paint sticks made from sticks and wood charcoal.
