Natural Science Illustration Series
$260 General Admission, $234 Members
Using conventional lighting, graphite and color pencils, Natural Science Illustrator “OC” Carlisle will guide students from preliminary “warm-up” independent drawing studies, studying and drawing a variety of botanical subjects, from rocks, twigs, fungi, acorns, vegetables, pods, to the flora of the season. After evaluating pre-class drawing studies, students will then explore color with color transitions, color bias, hue, value, and intensity. Working on techniques of proportional illustrations, showing highlights, shadow and reflected light that gives life to their drawings will follow. Students will learn floral dissection, using a microscope, composition with several objects, and preparing drawings for archival reproduction. Upon paid registration, students will receive a “kit” list of supplies to purchase, all to be delivered to the Botanical Garden before the first class, along with an assignment for shading/form technique which will provide the basis for all drawing and understanding lighting, producing form and texture.
Deadline for registration will be Feb. 1.
