Botanical painting resides at the crossroads of science and art. Students will learn about the rich tradition of botanical watercolor painting as well as modern applications and contemporary masters. Practice a variety of watercolor techniques and hone your observation skills. Kelsey Wilson will guide students through a leaf study, a fruit and vegetable study and a flower specimen study through demonstrations, one on one and group discussions. We will explore color mixing, brush control and how to compose a captivating painting.
