TODAY’S HOURS: 8 am – 6 pm 

Plant Portraits, Start to Finish: Intermediate Watercolor Workshop

This workshop has been cancelled due to low registration. 

Take the skills learned in Introduction to Watercolor and Watercolor: Next Steps and apply them to the plant portrait of your choosing. In this three hour class you will learn some basic tips for drawing for watercolor, and begin to paint the leaves, stem, and flower of your choosing. This is the third class in a series; one does not need to have enrolled the previous workshops to participate, though it is helpful.

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.
