Botanical Illustration Intensive Workshop
The National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kaua’I Hawaii

    February 2 – February 15, 2014 (Session 1)
    February 15 – 28, 2014 (Session 2)
    February 2 – February 28, 2014 (One-month Intensive)

    Time: 10 AM to 4 PM, daily

Study the fundamentals of botanical drawing using graphite pencil, colored pencils, watercolor pencils and watercolor. Drawing plants and flowers starts with observation.

Under the supervision of Wendy Hollender, illustrator, author, and instructor from The New York Botanical Garden, students will learn about plant structures and their importance through dissection and comparison.

Students will create detailed botanical drawings and sketchbook pages of flowering plants, fruits and seedpods, working directly from the wide variety of tropical plants growing at the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG).

There will be opportunity to work on large compositions and detailed paintings for those staying the entire month. Lessons in composition will facilitate the development of larger compositions.

Participants will study historical botanical illustrations spanning four centuries as a way of understanding the tradition and techniques still in use today.

Dr. David Burney and other NTBG botanists will be available to help with understanding botany and other aspects of plant ecology.

This class is appropriate for advanced students as well as beginners because everyone works individually. No previous art background required.

Instructional classes will be conducted four days each week at The National Tropical Botanical Garden, with one day per week allotted for field trips or working in other locations on the island. Participants will have a large indoor-outdoor classroom for use, with time to draw outside anywhere in the garden.

Instructor is available in the classroom and does daily demonstrations. There will be a demonstration about drawing in the garden to introduce participants to techniques used when drawing outside. The weekends are free where by students can visit the island, relax at the beach or continue to draw in the garden classroom.

Workshop Fees:
Two-week workshop: $950 includes sumptuous fresh lunch on class days featuring local produce and tropical fruits. Other meals are not included with the exception of a once a week beach dinner barbeque.

Accommodations are available at the National Tropical Botanical Garden in shared housing for an unbeatable price or in nearby Kalaheo and Poipu or other locations in the area. For those staying in shared housing there is a kitchen for shared use. Bed and Breakfasts options are also available.
