Description

Presented by Carol Ashton-Hergenhan, Botanical Illustrator

Have you ever wanted to know what the name of a flower is and describe it to an “expert” only to have them respond with a blank stare? Have you ever tried to draw a flower and think, “that doesn’t look anything like it!” Then this course will put you on the right path.

For Beginner to Intermediate Level: In this three-hour class, students will be exposed to the botanical terminology used to describe a plant, will learn how to look closely at a flower and be able to describe it in their own terminology, and will then translate that knowledge into a simple drawing of a flower.

Course materials: Students need to bring a soft black pencil (2B – 4B) and a non-smudging eraser (kneaded or plastic erasers recommended) and a pencil sharpener. Students should also bring writing materials for note taking.

Subjects and drawing paper will be provided by the instructor.

FREE of charge. Pre-registration required, class size limited.
