Conquering Complexities in Watercolor ~ NEW

2023. April 29 – May 13 @ Missouri Botanical Garden
St. Louis, Missouri 

Intermediate. Maria Sibylla Merian said, “Art and nature shall always be wrestling until they eventually conquer one another so that the victory is the same stroke and line: that which is conquered, conquers at the same time.” By looking closely at the work of Maria Sibylla Merian, individuals will learn to conquer complexities in watercolor! This class is designed for students with a basic understanding of watercolor painting who want to develop their skillset further. You will be taught new techniques as you study plants, focusing on composition, color awareness, techniques for capturing light, and working through mishaps that can occur when painting. Students will create a final life-like botanical painting. All levels welcome, but individuals should have a basic understanding of watercolors. Supply list will be provided at registration

From gardening practices to nature study and everything in between—the Missouri Botanical Garden offers a full range of classes for adults, families and children of all ages.

 

Painting from Nature Workshop 

2023. June 10, 17, 24 @ Missouri Botanical Garden
St. Louis, Missouri 

Beginner/Intermediate. Leonardo da Vinci said, “Study the science of art. Study the art of science.” Beginning with pencil, students will learn how to define form and structure, translate proportion and depth, and explore line and value. Students will then learn how to apply color to their compositions, gaining in depth knowledge of color mixing and paint application. Clear, step-by-step instructions will be provided to enable you to fully understand the process, creating multiple renderings from nature along the way. A final project and critique will round out the workshop.
