Easy Garden Sketching at the Celebration Garden

April 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm $130
  • This event has passed.

Date: Friday, April 5th
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Participant Fee: $130
Instructor: Eileen P. Goldenberg, avid Urban Sketcher
Registration includes a FREE Sketch Kit

Please plan to meet Eileen at the Main Entrance of the Botanical Garden 5-10 minutes before the workshop start time.

The Celebration Garden has a pavilion where we will start our class.

This walkway takes you back in time to some of the oldest plants on the planet. You expect a dinosaur to poke her head out from the trees! We will focus on a few of the plants and maybe add a bench to our sketches. Eileen will teach you three steps to set up a garden sketch.

Eileen will show you how to simplify shapes to make it easier to draw. Then we will look for shadows and details. Lastly, we will add watercolor. This is a relaxing way to start to observe the world around you and record as you go. Traveling is way more fun when you sketch!

Your FREE sketch kit will include everything you need to start your sketch practice. If you have taken Eileen’s class and would prefer to get a different kit, she can bring you a sketchbook and a Fountain pen with permanent ink. You can bring your watercolor palette, pencil,etc. If you would prefer this alternate kit, please register for the class then send an email to epgoldenberg3344@gmail with you name, date of class and a request for the #2 Sketch kit.

This class is open to anyone ages 7 and up who has a desire to sketch. Please be aware that no matter the age, everyone needs to register.
