Drawing Botanicals

SATURDAY JUNE 10 & 17, 10am to 1pm, SUNDAY June 18 2pm-4pm

Painter Jane Neroni will teach you how to observe and draw plant life.  Observational drawing is drawing exactly what you see.  There is something in the physical act of drawing, the coordination of hand, eye and plant, that reveals an entirely new way of seeing.  Working with fresh flowers and plants we will learn specific skills for drawing using line, shading and color in pencil, ink and watercolor. 

No experience is necessary

This course is offered as a three part program.  Individual classes are not available  Class limit is 12.  All three sessions: $180.

Materials: a separate materials fee of $20 will be collected at the first class. Materials are purchased by the instructor and distributed to students.
