The Art of Natural History
This course combines art history with hands-on projects through a series of recorded slide presentations and live (online) painting sessions. We'll examine the fascinating stories behind centuries of collecting and documenting the natural world, from Ancient Greece to the Enlightenment, with special focus on the art and science of the Renaissance. Students will develop skills in color rendering through a series of demonstrations and exercises in mixed media.
Open to all.
Intermediate Course: Observational drawing skills required. Email me with three drawing submissions as 72 dpi jpegs if you're not sure if you have the drawing skills required.
