World explorers brought artists with them to accurately depict the specimensthat were collected.  Using the collected specimens the artists would create scientifically accurate depictions of botanical flowers and leaves. This series will encourage the participant to observe nature more closely and will enable participants to learn a range of skills relating to botanical drawing. Students will be given step-by-step instructions on how to progress through botanical drawing projects. The drawing process when choosing botanical subjects will be discussed along with exercises on gesture, contour drawing, blending and burnishing. The workshop is best suited to students with some drawing experience and an interest in botanical art.
