Anita is an experienced Scientific Illustrator and teacher who is coming from the Netherlands to teach this very special class on October 12, 13, and 14. For a complete biography and an opportunity to see her work, visit her website.
Each student will select and bring to class a plant they wish to draw and get to know intimately.
The first day you will get to know the plant by study, making dissections, using a microscope and drawing.
The second day will be spent making a composition and deciding the technique you wish to work in. This can be in pencil, watercolor or pen and ink which will make it a scientific piece.
The last day we will try to finish our drawing or painting.
The teaching will be individual. Some experience would be nice.
The cost of this three day class on October 12, 13 and 14, will be $300. The cost for non-members is $350. Space will be held upon receipt of a $50.00 non-refundable deposit. Final payment is due to Leslie by September 28. A list of materials and a suggested reading list will be sent by email, upon payment of deposit. Checks should be made out to “BAGSC” and sent to Janice. Questions? Contact Leslie until August 31 or Janice after August 31.
The class will be held October 12, 13 & 14, from 9:30 to 3:30 each day at Sally Jacobs’ Studio.
