Take your drawings from flat to fabulous. The secret to portraying light and shadow on your subjects lies in understanding the scientific method of lighting as it applies to different forms. Beginning with basic geometric shapes, refine your skills in showing light and volume on any subject. The class will work entirely in graphite pencil, but the principles apply to all other media. As you progress from fruits and vegetables, to leaves and flowers, to entire plants with complex shapes, you will overcome the obstacles in creating three-dimensional drawings. Fee: $230 member, $285 non-member. Prerequisite: Botanical Illustration in Pencil I.
