Join Nina Antze to draw the flowers of spring – daffodils, tulips, roses, wildflowers or whatever is happening in your world in May! Colored Pencils are a fun, safe, and portable way to express oneself artistically. They are slow, calming, and meditative, easy to use for the beginner and challenging for the advanced artist. Watercolor pencils allow us to create the transparent look of some of the flowers or give us a base for richer more vibrant color. We will play with both. Using botanical drawing techniques, learn the basics of color theory, drawing, and application. This is a zoom workshop. All levels welcome.
