Do you love drawing and nature and want to learn about field sketching or botanical illustration?
I offer classes to groups or individuals on nature and botanical field sketching techniques!
I will guide you through drawing basics such as shading, proportions and skills to improve your observation skills. I will introduce you to basic plant identification and field sketching techniques, such as flower pressing, so you can include plants in your sketchbooks. I will also cover various art materials you can create from the natural world around you.
If you'd like me to teach a botanical or field sketching class, please get in touch!
Here is a preliminary class outline:
If you cannot make it to one of my classes and would like to learn about the basics of field sketching, check out this beginner field sketching pamphlet I created for you!
This packet is $5, the proceeds go to art materials, software fees and to supporting the artist. If you are planning on printing multiple copies (for educational use only) please purchase accordingly!
"(An) informative, fun, and inspirational class!"
"Julia was a great instructor, lots of ideas and enthusiasm. I would take a class from her again."
"Julia introduced several ideas that were new to me. I bought a wide-angle lens for my phone that will help in plant identification."
"I got a lot out of the class and would do it again!"
