Join artist Sam Welsh as you experiment and create beautiful botanical flower drawings. Learn easy and beginner illustration techniques, or hone your expert drawing skills with purposeful practice in a stunning setting. We will be drawing from live flowers as well as using books from the Paul D. Fleck Library and Archives. Participants are invited to try illustrating with watercolours, pencils, and fine-drawing pens. All materials provided (but bring your own if you have any favourites). Fall in love with drawing flowers and botanicals in this all-levels-welcome workshop.
