Botanical Illustration for ages 6-9
In this zoom class we will look at how artists make a scientific and observational drawing of plants, known at Botanical Illustration. Each student will look at a plant on the screen and we will discuss the growth patterns unique to that plant that will help us see and draw it better.
To complete the drawing we will work from plants you have on the table or from the screen. We will talk about composition, movement and a few other useful tricks that will help your drawings look beautiful.
Each student will have the opportunity to show their work and to receive positive feedback if desired.
Class includes a handout and recording of the class, question and answer time at the end of class.
80lb drawing paper or any white paper
permanent black marker, fine or medium with pointed tip.
