Drawing Flowers in Graphite
Join artist/illustrator Linda S. Gribko to learn to draw expressive and realistic flowers using simple graphite drawing techniques. You’ll learn how to recognize the simple shapes that make up an alstroemeria bloom, how to block out your drawing, and use shading to render form and volume. Then add the small details and personal flourishes that make a botanical drawing unique and lively. Most suitable for beginners and intermediate artists, although more advanced artists are also welcome. Basic drawing materials and flowers will be provided, or bring your favorite supplies. You will go home with at least one drawing and an illustrated step-by-step guide to creating more. Best for 14 years and older. $25 for WVBG members, $35 for non-members.
