About This Class


Sketching is so fascinating process! Botanical sketching this is very relaxing and peaceful process. And when you are doing both of this outdoors - you will get new amazing experience!

Sometimes we are shy to out and show the world that we are artists. We are afraid of other people see us drawing. Maybe some of you wanted to start sketching people on the street, but was not enough confident. 

Botanical sketching is a good point to start. It’s a lot simpler than to draw a human body, yet it’s a good training for hand. You will be outdoors, in nature, breathe fresh air and enjoy sunshine. Very relaxing indeed. Botanical sketching gives us a big freedom in listening to our feelings. How do we want to draw lines, what colors do we want to use. You will learn yourself deeply and all this things will develop your style quickly. 

In this class you will learn:

  • Exercises to get confident your hand
  • Basics principles of drawing any object
  • Sketching with different supplies to develop your style
  • Marker sketching

I encourage you to go out and find some beautiful place, parks, gardens. Maybe you live somewhere near the woods. Grab your pencils, brushes, markers or whatever you drawing with and find inspiration!
