About This Class

This class is for those who are curious to expand your visual vocabulary on the subject of plants and leaves. We will be moving from a ‘research’ perspective, where I will bring you through the process of building a visual leaf library, learning about leaf structure, leaf shapes, leaf edges and leaf venation — and then using this library as a springboard for creating your own unique drawings. 


The class is geared to any and all people who are interested in learning about a tool that will develop your artistic skills, and to those of you who love plants!

I frequently work from reference subjects and/or photos to capture the details and characteristics of specific botanical subjects. That said, it's nice to create loose, free-flowing illustrations featuring plant subjects that don't require precise rendering and I haven't really done that lately. This course was not only a nice little refresher on basic leaf anatomy, but it was just the inspiration I needed to work on some stylized illustrations with plants that are more free-flowing and whimsical than detailed and accurate. Just what I needed today. Thanks! :)
