Advance your skills and join in the fun for a weekend of botanical drawing and great food while gaining a deeper understanding of plants. At Hollengold Farm get close to the Earth to observe nature. With colored pencil and watercolor pencil create drawings of the wide variety of indigenous plants and homegrown edibles in the grounds at Wendy’s farm. We may even enjoy consuming the subjects as our lunch!
This is a very unique opportunity to draw in-person with artists & instructors Wendy Hollender and Veronica Fannin. Wendy’s “Grisaille” undertone technique with a top layer of color creates illuminated realistic plant portraits. This satisfying technique requires simple tools which allows artists to wander around the farm yard and explore the fields ‘capturing’ found subjects. The flora and fauna continually change with the seasons, weather and conditions. For advanced artists, layering and resist techniques such as masking and embossing will be practiced.
If you are coming from far away we have suggestions for overnight stays in the area. Join our mailing list for more details.

A refund of $40 per day will be given up until August 1, 2018.
