Foundations of Botanical Drawing

February 27, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Wednesday, repeating until March 13, 2019

Through demonstrations and tutorials, Education Director of Wellesley College Botanic Gardens (WCBG) Sarah Roche will introduce you to the traditional art and science of botanical drawing and painting. Instructional focus includes observational skills, drawing, composition, design, and watercolor techniques. For the fall, this class will focus on mixing greens, building up the intensity of a painting through washes and glazes to give complex and rich detail. Starting with studies and exercises, we will work together to complete a final painting with accurate color, texture and detail.
