This unique workshop discusses drawing and illustrating techniques for botanicals and small creatures.  Working from a reference such as live mice, fresh flowers, and a host of hi-resolution stills and photographs that capture the small world of flowers and birds from the wide outdoors, we will scratch and dip away at life from the perspective of a small creature.  We will make small things seem huge and get our macro lens action on as we draw small things in detail!

Supplies for this class include calligraphy or drawing ink, a dip pen with a selection of interchangeable nibs, a smooth sketchbook, and some watercolors.
