Part of the Botanical Illustration in a Desert Garden series, Prints from a Desert Garden invites participants to explore the beauty and variety of desert landscape plants and follow in the footsteps of botanist-explorers by learning how to observe and document plants through drawing. In this session, participants will learn about the history of botanical illustration, specifically the construction of 18th century botanical illustrations by creating a small print block of one of their sketches. Materials: 9" x 12" sketchbook (or a clipboard with 8 1/2" x 11" printer paper) Drawing pencils (2B, HB) Colored pencils Folding stool or camping stool to use in the garden suggested, but not necessary Participants who enroll only in this class: Please bring a contour sketch or a developed sketch of a desert plant to use in this session. A plant with simple forms or a simple growth habit are best.
