See a Plant, Draw a Plant: A Botanical Illustration Mini-Series for Beginners

Wednesdays, December 1, 8, and 15 from 5:00 – 6:00 pm

Presented by Carol Ashton-Hergenhan, Botanical Illustrator, Artist for the Jenkins Florilegium Project

Have you ever tried to describe a flower to a friend but don’t have the words? 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. In this three-hour class, students will be introduced 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.

This series will be held virtually. A link, viewing instructions, and a recommended materials list will be emailed after your registration is complete.
