Colored pencils are ideal for capturing the subtle details of flowers. Explore the beauty of the Arboretum while learning to draw amazing spring blooms such as irises, peonies, clematis, shrub roses, and the yellow lady's-slipper! View stunning varieties and take photos for drawing in-class (optional) as Gretchen takes you on a brief walk around the grounds. Return to the classroom for demonstrations on graphite and colored pencil techniques, which will be used to produce realistic depictions and make corrections. Gretchen will teach you

  • how to observe a plant
  • render its details

Individual instruction will be given as you draw from provided photographs and live specimens.
