Botanical Drawing Class Starting This Month At Center For Urban Horticulture

The Center for Urban Horticulture, located in Laurelhurst is starting up a "Botanical Drawing" class this month that will run for seven Tuesday evenings beginning January 22nd.
Early bird registration with a $30 discount goes until Friday with a cost of $230 for the series.
The description says:

The pencil is an effective tool for producing beautiful botanical works, and skill in pencil rendering is also a good basis for ongoing study of botanical art in other media, such as watercolor. Beginning with measurement techniques, observational skills, and the unique requirements of botanical art, the class teaches use of line to accurately portray plant subjects, then moves on to understanding light’s effect on form and the use of shading for three-dimensionality.
While focusing on plants, skills acquired apply to any realistic drawing effort. All levels welcome; intermediate students can take on more advanced plant subjects.

A short list of materials for the first class will be provided with registration, and a more complete list of supplies will be discussed in the first class.
The class will be taught by Kathleen McKeehen, Botanical Artist and Instructor.
To register call 206-685-8033 or go here.
