Prerequisite: Intermediate courses in botanical art & illustration
Level: Intermediate to advanced

Students will have the opportunity to select a pollinator and their host plant to develop with colored pencils and watercolors throughout this three-week course.

Discover innovative techniques to create metallic sheen and shimmer seen from any angle and direction without the use of iridescent paints. You’ll have the opportunity to experiment with different layering techniques on leaves and plant materials.

NOTE: This course will be taught online using Zoom. Students will need access to a computer that has a built-in camera or a smart phone. The instructor will use live demonstrations during this online workshop to demonstrate techniques and review concepts. During each three-hour session students will have the opportunity to ask questions and submit their artwork via email or share it live during the class for review by the instructor. A recording will be emailed to students after each session and made available for up to 90 days after.
