Readers looking for classes in the Chicago region have three opportunities to learn botanical art and colored pencil techniques this summer.
Kathleen Garness will teach three sessions of an introductory course about drawing plants in colored pencil. Participants will receive materials to take home with them, compliments of the Anne Ophelia Dowden grant awarded to Kathleen last Fall by the American Society of Botanical Artists.
Here is what’s new at Classes Near You > Chicago:
Kathleen is a natural science illustrator whose illustrations are being used to illustrate a guide to common plant families in the Chicago region. Her work has been shown in many exhibitions and is also featured in the 2011 issue of Smithsonian in Your Classroom, an issue dedicated to botany, art and conservation.
