Join Dayna Walton of Solstice Handmade for a drawing workshop to explore the basics of botanicals with pen and ink. This time, the focus will be on spring ephemeral wildflowers, a unique group of plants that bloom early in the spring season. We will cover some foundational drawing techniques using both a brush pen and fine tipped pen, then apply our new skills to create a finished drawing. This class is open to any skill level, from beginners to experienced artists looking for a new perspective. All the supplies you'll need are included- 2 drawing pens are yours to keep. However- feel free to bring along your own pens/markers if you'd like to experiment.

About the instructor: Dayna Walton is visiting from her new home in Western North Carolina. Originally from Hudsonville, MI, she studied printmaking at KCAD and now runs a small screen printing business in her backyard studio. She loves to use art to teach and build a connection between people and the plants, insects, and animals that makes their home unique.
