This class series will involve watercolor, drawing, and plant identification from observation. All skill levels will be welcome and will benefit from this hands-on class with lots of one-on-one and group instruction. We’ll look at various artist’s interpretations of plants and ways to convey identification details with accuracy and personal style. We will focus on identifying and depicting 8-10 local plants over the 4 class sessions.
