Watercolor: Next Steps

Registration for this workshop is closed.

Continue your watercolor learning journey with this intermediate class, building on the skills learned in Introduction to Botanical Watercolor. Students will learn tips for composition and watercolor techniques emphasizing realism of botanical subjects, and will learn “insurance policies” to fix many common watercolor mistakes.

Instructor: Instructor Samantha Peters is a science illustrator based in Dallas. She received her B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in Neurobiology from the University of Texas at Austin and attended the School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, leaving once she realized illustrating her study guides was more fun than actually studying them. Afterwards, while living in New York City, she discovered a love of botanical art through classes at the New York Botanical Garden, and decided to pursue science illustration full time, attending the graduate program in Science Illustration at California State University, Monterey Bay. Samantha currently works in the graphics department at the Dallas Zoo and is the president of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators Texas Group and a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators and the American Society of Botanical Artists.
