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!
