Special Considerations in Color and Texture: Advanced Watercolor Workshop

We apologize for the inconvenience; this workshop has been cancelled. 

Build on the skills learned in Watercolor Parts 1-3, and learn special techniques for colors and textures often found in nature. Tackle tough projects like white subjects on white paper, color variegation, and shiny and hairy textures, among others. Following this class, students will be prepared to tackle the botanical subject(s) of their choosing with confidence.

Instructor: Samantha Peters is a science illustrator based in Dallas, Texas. 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. Member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators and the American Society of Botanical Artists.
