About Drawing Plants with Ink and Colored Pencil

Learn how to draw plants using sumi ink and colored pencil. We will work with live plant material in the ABG Greenhouse.

All materials are provided! Explore graphite pencil to sketch volume, basic shapes, and angles. Try sumi ink and Japanese brush painting techniques to capture line quality, movement, tonality, and gain confidence while drawing. Use colored pencils to practice layering, shading, and matching colors.

This workshop will not only help you to draw better, but to understand plants better by observing them closely from different lighting and angles.

You must register ahead of time. All materials are included. Participants will get to keep their journals and a sumi ink set with brush. There is a $5 cancellation fee for all cancellations. No refunds given for cancellations within 48 hours of the workshop.
