Ever want to know the name of a flower and describe it to an “expert” only to have them respond with a blank stare? Ever try to draw a flower and think, “that doesn’t look anything like it?” Then this class will put you on the right path. Register online.
In this three-hour virtual class, students will be exposed to the botanical terms used to describe a plant; learn to how to look closely at a flower and be able to describe it in their own terminology; and translate that knowledge into a simple drawing of a flower.
