BOTANICAL SKETCHING AND WATERCOLORS FOR BEGINNERS Saturday 23rd June at 10.00am

Beginning in its truest form as a recognised art genre in the 15th century, botanical art has a long and recognised tradition in both the sciences and arts, not just for teaching and record keeping, but also for personal expression and enjoyment. In this introductory Botanical Art Workshop for beginners, you’ll observe, discuss and experiment with the basic techniques of sketching and detailing a botanical object with pencil, and then shading and coloring your sketch with watercolors. We’ll discuss outlining, light, proportion, tone, depth, basic color composition and mixing, pencil and brush skills, and all you need to know to get started, so you can begin spending relaxing time in your garden, capturing the detail and beauty of nature.

Presented by Clare James - an acclaimed Yarra Valley Artist who draws inspiration from all the things she loves: family and animals, and especially nature and her gorgeous garden. Clare grows, preserves and eats from her garden, nurturing the connection between soil and plate, and adores artistically capturing the obvious and not so obvious from her natural surroundings.

Attendees are required to bring their own watercolor pencils and paper/sketch book please.
