Backyard Botanical Art: Looking Closely, Take Two
April 25, 2020; 9:30 AM–10:30 AM CDT
This monthly livestream is an evolution of the Museum’s Botanical Art Workshop that traditionally takes place in the John and Joyce Caddell Sculpture Garden. Through the MMFA’s Instagram account, Assistant Curator of Education Laura Bocquin shares the basics of botanical art that you can accomplish in your own backyard.
Laura demonstrates how to use drawn lines and painted color gradation to create the impression of curving leaves and petals.
Materials used: watercolor paper, pencil, colored pencils, ultra-fine pen, watercolor paints and paintbrushes, palette, and water.
