About This Class

Line drawing is an easy art form featuring illustrative, doodle-like designs. It's used widely among artists of many types with both fine lines and bold lines. In this class, you will be introduced to techniques that will assist you in creating beautiful flowers and leaves.


You will learn that you can create many styles from the same object depending on the mood you want it to reflect (e.g. simple, textured, intricate, ornate, etc.).

This class walks through drawing the following:

  • Ferns
  • Branches
  • Leaves
  • Flowers of many kinds
  • Wreaths
  • Laurels
  • Cacti
  • Succulents

You will work off of lines and shapes, photographs, pressed flowers and live flowers and leaves!

Very easy to follow, Peggy is a great instructor!
A very useful class for anyone who wants to strat botanical line drawings. It teaches you not only how to draw in the style of the instructor, but also how to draw from life examples and make it your own. Loved it. Thank you Peggy!
The mystery of line drawn botanicals is finally unveiled! Knowing how much detail to include was frustrating until now. Finally--instructions so clear that my drawings are very close to Peggy's on the first attempt. Anyone who wants to learn how to line-draw flowers and leaves can confidently start here!

The Pigeon Letters | Lettering & Illustration

Hey hey! I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700).
