Event description

Description

Join the ranks of John James Audubon and Maria Sibylla Merian by making beautiful, scientifically accurate drawings from nature. Celebrate the rich natural history of the Southern Appalachian region, improve your observation skills, and make graceful works of art to keep or share. This three-part workshop will provide an introduction to accurate biological drawing using graphite pencil, ink pen, and watercolor. Prior drawing experience is helpful but not necessary, and materials will be provided.

Instructor Nancy Lowe is Director of Art + Science In the Field: AS IF Center near Penland, NC, and earned a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her scientific illustrations and other works of art have been exhibited in many galleries in the US and Europe. For two decades, she has taught scientific illustration at biological field stations, universities, and museums in the US and Costa Rica.

This is a 3 week class occurring on Saturdays, 10am to 1pm from September 21 to October 5

Materials: Included for use in class. Should you like to bring your own materials, a list will be provided with your confirmation email.

Dress: Please wear comfortable shoes, a smock, apron or old clothes, and bring your glasses! If the weather is nice, we may draw in the garden outside the classroom, or in the town park. Please bring a folding chair for this purpose.
