Sketching Spring Ephemerals

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$20 – $60

Designed for enthusiasts with little to no artistic training, this foundation course focuses on creating accurate and beautiful botanical illustrations. Led by Preston Montague, Carolina Naturalist, participants will learn basic observation and drawing techniques with pen and pencil and will use colored pencils to apply vibrant color.

Though designed for beginners, students with more intermediate skills are encouraged to join in, too. This program may involve less than one mile of easy walking. Limited to 12 participants.

Registration costs $60 standard or $20 for Bridge Club members. Bridge Club members must present a valid Bridge Club ID with their event ticket/receipt, or they will be charged full price. To register, see below.
