Have you ever wondered how botanical artists create stunningly realistic paintings of flowers, branches, seeds, or fruits? Now is your chance to wet your feet in the world of botanical illustration and produce your own botanical artwork!
In this hands-on workshop, learn the basics of botanical illustration with artist Heeyoung Kim of the Heeyoung Bontanical Art Academy. Learn how to best connect your love of art with your love of the outdoors!
Heeyoung Kim, known as ‘Wildflower Painter’, paints and documents native plants in watercolor, graphite pencil, and ink in a traditional/scientific way, yet with a touch of modern edge with her keen sense of composition and mastery of the media she uses.
Her watercolors and graphite pencil drawings have received 4 awards from New York International HSNY/ASBA including Best of Show (2012), RHS Gold Medal (2012), and her 3 watercolors are included in Prince of Wales’s Transylvania Florilegium. She exhibited her ink illustrations at Margaret Flockton Award (2010, 2013), and 2 works in watercolor and ink at Hunt 13th International (2010). She has mounted five solo exhibitions and exhibited in numerous international juried group exhibitions.
This IMGC session will run approximately two hours and includes learning and practicing illustration with graphite pencil and watercolor. A art kit will be provided, including paper, pencils, and paint supplies.
