Botanical Drawing Intro: Swamp White Oak

Botanical Drawing Intro: Swamp White Oak

This Botanical Drawing Intro Teaches You How to Draw Trees!

This botanical drawing intro focuses on the beautiful Swamp White Oak. Botanical drawing helps you to connect more deeply with the natural world via direct observation. The simple act of starting a drawing slows you down long enough to notice details about a subject that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Human beings are natural explorers. We take joy in understanding the world around us & recognize the value of attaining knowledge & skills through experience & practice. 

This How to Draw Trees workshop will teach you a variety of drawing techniques that are not only helpful for starting a botanical drawing, but for continuing your nature drawing practice for years to come.
