Botanical Art

“Papaver somniferum”, by Gloria Acosta, 2017


The natural world provides endless opportunities to create art. In these classes you’ll discover the variety of techniques to create beautiful drawings, working from observation and from photographs. We use objects from nature as subject matter, such as: wild and garden flowers, fruits and vegetables, tree branches, shells, feathers and more… Photo references, books, and slideshows are used as sources for inspiration.

Relaxing Botanical Art class is designed for students of all levels. It teaches how to use plants as the subject of art with easy approaches and many visual examples.
In this online class we’ll work both from photo sources (that I gladly will provide) and the live subjects that students may find around.

The main materials are colored pencils, and some additional materials such as watercolor paints or watercolor pencils may also be used in the class.
