Art Classes

Botanical Art Workshops

with Heeyoung Kim

This course is designed for botanical art students of all levels who are willing to make a commitment to learn and improve their drawing and painting skills. The most basic but most important techniques will be studied through the course with continuity, so that students can truly absorb the techniques and apply them intuitively. Some sessions will focus on a specific topic or skill, some will be "open" and allow the students to work on their own projects with guidance and advice from the instructor.

 

Pre-registration required. It is recommended that newcomers and beginners take foundation courses (in green) before moving on to intensive workshops. To register or for more information, contact Heeyoung Kim at info@prairieplantart.com or 847.903.7348.
