Relish and rediscover the joy of drawing in pencil - for this is a class for advanced and not-so-advanced students. Refresh your pencil technique, your hand-eye coordination skills, and find an even greater appreciation for the fundamentals of an analytical drawing process designed to give your drawing a finer sense of scale, perspective, and detail. Feel the magic of creating "value" as your botanical drawings slowly emerges and comes to life with shape, form, depth, and dimension. All of this - plus an ongoing review of drawing techniques across the centuries.
