The Leach Garden presents Nature Illustration Workshop. We will learn to look and really SEE how flowers, leaves, branches, and other parts of Mother Nature are constructed. We’ll create a detailed botanical drawing on paper using pencil, fine-point drawing pens and any other preferred media. This class is suitable for all art skill levels and appropriate for children ages 9-14. Supplies included.
Instructor: As a teacher and artist, Jane Nash has done many things over the years, always returning to teaching and creating art. She’s a muralist, painting mostly residentially but also commercially, an acrylic painter of landscapes and interiors but also portraits, nature illustration, pet portraits, anime and anything else inspiring. Jane is also a thangka painter and has been learning how to paint these sacred Tibetan images with Frank Sanje Elliott, her teacher for the last thirteen years. She loves teaching both adults and children and is a partner in Fun with Tom and Jane, a business which goes into Assisted Living Facilities and provides arts and crafts projects for seniors.
