Prerequisite: Botanical Drawing I

Understanding foreshortening, various perspectives and shadow placement can make the most challenging botanical drawing a success. During this two-session course, work with various botanical forms, including twining vines, contorted branching and cup- or trumpet-shaped blooms. The drawing exercises supplement Botanical Drawing I and II concepts and allow further focused practice. Botanical Art and Illustration Certificate elective
