Natural History Illustration: Watercolor Focus

Thursday, October 3, 2019, 6:30 – 9pm
Taught by GNSI member Sharon Birzer

7 Thursday Evenings, October 3-17, November 7-December 5 (No class Oct. 24, 31 and Nov. 28), 2019, 6:30-9pm

Gain confidence in observing form while working with biological subjects to document and interpret what you see. Build observational and visual interpretation skills while exploring illustration using a variety of techniques, including graphite, pen and ink, and watercolor. Explore how these essential media are applied to make drawings into more refined illustrations. The focus of this fundamental course is drawing, from gestural sketching to precision rendering of illustrations for scientific purposes. This class can be taken as part of a series with the next season’s offering, which will focus on colored pencil techniques rather than watercolor. All levels welcome.
