Bronxville Adult School

Nature Drawing in the Gardens AAC61

This plein air drawing course is appropriate for both beginner and experienced artists. In four sessions, we will complete a series of drawings based on observation. We will work with the varied flora of the New York Botanical Garden, and draw the imagery using different techniques and materials introduced in the class. You will learn to render organic forms, using expressive line, negative space, and value as we draw natural forms. You’ll gain confidence and understanding about how to approach drawing, so you’ll be pleased with your progress and resulting work. By understanding HOW to look, you will overcome the obstacles which prevent you from drawing well. Both beginner and repeat students are welcome!
