Botanical Watercolor Painting

Maia Hausler
Monday, August 27- Tuesday, August 28
12 – 4 pm

Learn the art of botanical watercolor painting in this 2-Day workshop. Botanical artist Maia Hausler will teach you the basics of using watercolor to paint beautiful botanicals; everything from observational study to the art of adding (or leaving out) details such as textures and veins. We will start in the garden at the Old Art Building by sketching and observing the various plants we find there. We will then learn various techniques for painting botanicals using watercolor and work on turning our sketches into finalized illustrations.
