Our live online classes are taught via Zoom. Students have the opportunity to interact with the instructor and other participants, watch live demos and receive feedback and instruction. You will have access to a class chat forum on our website where you can share work, comment and ask questions. You will also have access to recordings of the class that will expire 30 days after the final day of the course.
To take this class, you need a microphone and camera enabled computer OR an iPad /smart tablet OR a smart phone (android or IOS) and a strong internet connection.
You will receive an email with the Zoom link and class details 5-7 days before the class starts (don’t forget to check your junk folder). Find out how to access the class group message board here.
We will create sketchbook pages to document what is happening in our gardens each month. We will chose one or two plants or trees to follow through the seasons from the gray days of winter to the first spring buds. We will focus on color mixing, try our different colored pencil techniques, and learn a little botany as we go. Learn to look closely at the changes in plant life in your own back yard.
Supply list and monthly handouts will be provided. All levels welcome.
