Botanical Sketching in Watercolor & Ink: Color in the Garden

Capture the amazing colors of your garden in watercolor! In this hands-on class, you will be guided through an intuitive approach to sketching with pen and layering watercolor washes, plus you will learn simple techniques and tips that can be applied to everyday sketching and painting. Explore color mixing and strategies, beginning with fun warm-up exercises using a variety of colorful flowers from the nursery! All levels welcome. $55 fee includes all supplies needed.

Instructor Lisa Snow Lady has a BFA in painting from the University of Washington, a degree in Ornamental Horticulture from Edmonds Community College, and has been sketching and painting for over 20 years. She has a passion for travel sketching and is a member of Urban Sketchers. Lisa teaches botanical sketching at the Volunteer Park Conservatory and through the University of Washington Botanic Center and loves to encourage students of all artistic levels.
