Botanical Drawing: Weeds in Winter
Saturday, Feb 3, 2018
11:00am – 3:30pm
Celebrate the endless variety of structures and the fascinating shapes and textures of the weeds of winter. Join a Watershed naturalist on an exploratory walk, followed by a drawing workshop led by Arts Council of Princeton Botanical Illustrator Ruth Councell. Participants will collect specimens during the walk for later use in the studio. After lunch (please remember to bring a sack lunch; hot beverages will be provided), the group will spend time with specimens, studying and sketching them under Ruth´s guidance. Topics such as tonal values, light on form, composition, and techniques for achieving various textures will be covered, with ample one-on-one support offered between instructor and student. Participants should come dressed for wintry weather on the trails. Registration is exclusively through Arts Council of Princeton. Please call (609)924-8777 or visit classes at artscouncilofprinceton.org. Member rate applies to current members of either organization.
