This informal group meets in a video-free private chat forum with a librarian from the Free Library's Art Department to talk about and practice botanical illustration using the e-book Art of Botanical & Bird Illustration, look at many other digital library resources like Botanical Illustration: the Essential Reference to see different approaches to depicting plants and share resulting work with each other.
No prior drawing experience or materials required! We'll talk about working with whatever art supplies are already around the house, looking at plants and different ways to document them, from drawing, painting and photography to nature printing and pressing specimens for a herbarium. Both e-books and many more are freely available to anyone with a Free Library of Philadelphia card.
