Botanical Sketching in the Garden

Being an herbalist, I (Sarah) have wanted to be able to sketch plants for a long time. I'm not an artist, I just want to be able to draw a likeness of plants in my garden or that I see other places. Finally, the opportunity presented itself! Eli Weaver is an artist and a lover of herbs. She's also my garden apprentice this year, and the idea for these classes came out of our conversations as we worked together in the garden. The first three classes were held this summer, and all of us were happy with the experiences we had together. I even managed to draw some recognizeable plants! So we've scheduled 3 more dates this Autumn.

Experience the garden as it puts itself to bed. Come to this class led by local artist, Eli(sabeth) Weaver and learn how to view plants, how to portray their characteristics, style and spirit through drawing. Join her in our outdoor studio - the Herbs from the Labyrinth garden - over the course of several weeks. We will gather as a group to study plants and practice our drawing techniques. All levels are welcome.

This class will be held in the gardens of Herbs from the Labyrinth, 1053 Wheatland Avenue in Lancaster.
