|Nature Drawing in the Gardens
This plein air drawing course is appropriate for both beginner and experienced artists. In four sessions, we will complete a series of drawings based on observation. We will work with the varied flora of the New York Botanical Garden, and draw the imagery using different techniques and materials introduced in the class. You will learn to render organic forms, using expressive line, negative space, and value as we draw natural forms. You'll gain confidence and understanding about how to approach drawing, so you'll be pleased with your progress and resulting work. By understanding HOW to look, you will demystify the process and break the obstacles which prevent you from drawing well. Both new and repeat students are welcome!
NOTE: Please wear appropriate walking shoes, and bring a hat and water. We will move through varied locations depending on the light and weather.
