Have you ever wanted to learn to draw plants or wanted to improve your drawing skills? Join us for a class that centers on observing and drawing the many varied forms of plant life that southwest Florida offers. In this once-a-week, 8-week class we’ll develop our drawing skills as we learn about the fundamental elements of art (line, form, composition, value, texture). These classes build on each other, so it is important to make as many as possible. This is an indoor and outdoor class, so wear appropriate clothing. Materials required: sketchbook suitable for pencil, your favorite pencil(s), then for the last 2 classes bring your favorite portable color medium suitable for sketchbooks (water-based preferred).

- Time/Place: 9 am – 12 pm, Naples Botanical Garden FGCU Kapnick Center room 124
- Cost: $35 Members / $40 Non-Members per class
Elizabeth spent her early years in the woods and waters of Iowa developing a love for plants and wildlife. She received her B.A. in art at Florida Gulf Coast University, with postgraduate classes in education. She is especially interested in combining art with other disciplines and using the arts to heal. She is a member of the United Arts Council, Florida Native Plant Society, and was selected in 2011 by the Legacy Institute of Nature and Culture as one of ten Florida artists to participate in the Greater Everglades Conservation Atlas project. Elizabeth’s goal is to combine nature and art in order to increase awareness, enjoyment, and stewardship of our natural world through her blog, A Nature Art Journal: the natural world of Southwest Florida, workshops, classes, and occasional exhibits in Naples and Ft. Myers.
