Celebrate California native plants, especially the plants of the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument Region! Join professional botanical illustrator Marjorie Leggitt for a three-day workshop that will increase your observational skills, your drawing techniques, and your ability to develop and complete an illustrated “field guide” composition in a medium of choice.

Begin the workshop with a guided field trip introducing native plant communities. After Marjorie demonstrates her field sketching technique for recording botanical data, spend time observing and sketching before collecting a favorite specimen. In the classroom learn step-by-step techniques for developing your sketches into more accurate renderings. Discover the magic of turning these drawings into an artistic and well-designed composition. Introduction to a few simple tools, offers you the option to add scales and labels to your illustration.

One-on-one guidance, instruction, and group input help you in your journey to create a final piece of art.

Note: This workshop emphasizes the process of on-site recording and composition development. Students are expected to have a working knowledge of their medium of choice.
