June 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until June 15, 2018
A three-day botanical art intensive featuring Betsy Barry, Botanical Artist and Instructor.
Working from life in the gardens and in the Hartman Education Center, participants will use graphite, pen, and colored pencil to capture the beauty of the flowers abloom in the Museum’s gardens.
Day I (June 13)—Introduction to Materials
Starting with sketchbook exercises and techniques in the studio, students will explore the geometric shapes and the basics that give a framework for creating life-like botanical drawings.
Day II (June 14)—Exploration and Working in the Field
Students will explore the grounds of the Museum, sketching en plein air learning to record observations on paper.
Day III (June 15)—Composition and the Start of Something Lovely
Students will work in the studio, transferring plein-air sketches into a final work using colored pencil and learning the layering technique necessary to complete a work of botanical art.
Class runs rain or shine. Materials list available upon registration. Students will have an hour for lunch at Café Flo or can bring their own.
