Botanical Workshops – Beginner

Friday, August 23, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

You Can Draw (Beginner) 9:30AM-12PM
This is an introductory class to drawing. We begin with basic shapes and learn to render them 3 dimensionally. The primary focus of this class is to render subjects accurately. We will focus on beginning drawing skills using graphite pencils. Learn to draw with accuracy while incorporating design elements that make your work unique.

You Can Paint (Beginner) 12:30PM-3PM
Using botanicals as our inspiration, you will learn brushwork beginning with Sumi-e Painting (black and white) and move on to watercolor. By the end of this class you will have acquired painting skills, a basic understanding of color theory, composition design, and expressive painting.

Taught by local artist Marlene Boonstra

Each class runs 2 1/2 hours
Cost: $45 per individual class
$40 per class 2 consecutive classes (same day – Painting & Drawing)

Price includes basic materials.

** If you plan on attending BOTH classes there will be a short lunch break, please bring something to eat & drink **
