This five week course will explore both traditional and experimental media and mark making tools, often looking to the surrounding grounds to inform the work we create. Working from live specimens, participants will learn to understand and render the shapes and forms of plants and flowers using an array of guided techniques. Embracing one’s own inherent style of seeing and rendering will be highly encouraged.
