Botanical Art is not just about green plants…let’s not forget fungi, branches, and the odd thing you find on the ground! Mushrooms are having a moment and you can be in on the fun. Learn how to draw and paint gilled mushrooms, shelf fungus, polypores, and boletes. Or choose an interesting branch — something with peeling bark, something smooth. Or on your next walk in the woods, look down. Winter gives us a plethora of objects to draw: seed pods, nuts, dried leaves, berries, and more. You bring the subject and we’ll work through the steps to draw it successfully. You can add it to your sketchbook via graphite, pen, or watercolor in this relaxed artistic environment. Class will be held via Google Meet.
