Somerset Art Association
4-day Botanical Workshop
September 8, 9, 10, 11
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
This workshop will introduce students to the fundamentals needed to render plants and flowers accurately in graphite pencil and watercolor or gouache. Through a series of simple exercises students will learn how to look closely, understand floral structure and most importantly learn a variety of techniques created to remove the mystery of how to depict botanical subjects realistically. Additionally, students will be encouraged to keep a 'seasonal nature journal.'
