VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM

Join Katy Lyness, passionate home gardener and teacher of Botanical Illustration at the New York Botanical Garden, as she returns with a new two-part Botanical Drawing class.

As Spring starts to appear around us, learn how to use colored pencils to capture the singular beauty of the Tulip flower. This two-day workshop will cover basic drawing skills and colored pencil techniques. The first day will cover instruction and demonstration; the second day will consist of constructive critiques of the students' work.
