March 8, 2017; 10am to 3pm

Learn the essential steps in creating life-like botanical art during a Watercolor Workshop with artist Sally Petru. Working with fresh flowers from San Francisco Botanical Garden you will learn how to draw and compose a piece, understand how pigment, water, and paper interact, and finally, take brush to paper and paint your drawing. A materials list will be provided. No art experience is required, however, if you are a practiced painter you are sure to learn something new! Bring a lunch.
