Monthly Botanical Workshops at East End Arts School in Riverhead
Light on Form I (The Principles) - Friday, March 22, 2019 from 2:00 - 5:00 PM
In this workshop we will work to create the illusion of three-dimensionality and a sense of reality, learning the basis techniques to accurately render different botanical shapes, by way of tonal drawing executed in monochrome. We will be using graphite pencils and a single dark colored pencil, varying the tones to describe form, depth of space, and volume. All levels welcome.
Light on Form II (Applied to Spring Flowers) - Wednesday, April 17, 2019 from 2:00 - 5:00 PM
Study, and render the play of light and shadows on flowers in monochrome, creating the appearance of three-dimensionality on a two dimensional surface (paper).
The Many Shades of Green (Colored Pencil) - Friday, May 17, 2019 from 2:00 - 5:00 PM
In this workshop we will learn to replicate the different and many hues of green found in nature, and to match, mix, deepen, alter, and choose the appropriate colored pencils for botanicals. All levels welcome.
Pollinators and Their Host Plants (Ink & Colored Pencil) - Monday, June 10, 2019 from 2:00 - 5:00 PM
