An introduction to botanical watercolors

Sunday, March 25, 2018; 10:00AM-4:00PM

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 create an accurate composition in graphite. The afternoon will be spent on painting. Sally will demonstrate how pigment, water, and paper interact, guiding you through your own painting. No art experience is required, however, if you are a practiced painter you are sure to learn something new! Bring a lunch. A materials list will be provided. Basic materials will be available for purchase.

About the instructor: Sally Petru is a botanical illustrator with 18 years of experience. She has been teaching both beginners and experienced artists locally for several years now. She obtained a Certificate in Botanical Illustration from Filoli in Woodside after several years of small group instruction. She finds that teaching botanical art brings both her and her students great joy. Her involvement in teaching and promoting botanical art has created a sense of community.
