Botanical Drawing

Taking your inspiration from the historical tradition of botanical illustration, learn to draw botanical specimens in a wide range of drawing media, including graphite, pen and ink, colored pencil, and watercolor pencil. You will explore composition and personal style as you execute carefully observed perceptual drawings. The instructor will supply some plants, but you also will be asked to bring in specimens. The class includes excursions to the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Instructors: Sean Dunstan-Halliday
