Drawing Plants & Their Textures With Jeanne Reiner

April 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$30 – $40

Come and learn from botanical artist, Jeanne Reiner, about how to draw different plant textures. Whether it is a blade of grass, a veiny tropical leaf, fuzz on a lamb’s ear leaf, or silk on a seed pod; plants have an inordinate variety of textures to try to capture on paper and Jeanne will demystify this process for artists of all abilities. Using graphite pencils students will learn how to depict various textures found on plants such as tiny hairs, veins, striations etc. Students will create an entire page using techniques which can be later utilized for other illustrations.

She is currently serving as a board member of the American Society of Botanical Artists. She has been named, in 2021, a Fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists in the United Kingdom.
