Botanical Illustration - Emerging Spring: A Visual Narrative

March 20, 2018       10:00 AM - 04:00 PM
Location: Education Center at Berkshire Botanical Garden

This class meets for 3 days: Tuesday, March 20 - Thursday, March 22, 10am - 4pm
Bring a bag lunch. Materials list coming soon!

Bring together the furled dry leaves of winter and newly emerging plants and flowers of spring to create a vibrant composition of contrast that tells the story of the seasonal change and the cycle of plant life. Students will choose from a selection of dried leaves, twigs and newly potted plants and flowers to develop compositional ideas in graphite pencil, and then through interactive class feedback will select the most successful design plan to execute a final illustration of Emerging Spring. This class, taught by Carol Ann Morley, is open to students without pen and ink experience who would like to complete this project in graphite.

Carol Ann Morley is a professional artist and dedicated teacher working in Milton, NH. She founded the Botanical Art and Illustration Certificate Program at the New York Botanical Garden and teaches botanical art and drawing at the New York Botanical Garden, Wellesley College Botanic Garden, and Sanctuary Arts in Eliot, ME.
