Botanical Drawing & Painting

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Botanical Drawing & Painting

Course Code: ARTS1836

While studying a wide variety of botanical specimens, you will learn several drawing and painting techniques and their applications. Through a series of progressive exercises, you will develop your technique and observational skills leading to in-depth analyses. This will enable you to visually interpret the intricate shapes, forms, textures and colours of the plants studied. At the beginning of the course, emphasis will be placed on accurately depicting botanicals, with the option of later experimenting with expressive colour choices and different drawing and painting styles. Composition and perspective as they apply to botanical art will be addressed. Instruction will include frequent demonstrations and ongoing feedback as needed. This course is suitable for all skill levels.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
