“It is sometimes claimed that the ability to paint and draw leaves well, rather than flowers, is what makes the difference between a good and an excellent botanical artist.” Margaret Stevens, The Art of Botanical Painting.

If you are a nature artist, you know that drawing leaves are the most important objects we draw and yet often the most difficult. Learn to mix and identify “good” greens, draw veins and edges, and make your leaves come to life. Experiment with creating fun browns to create interesting stems and branches. Enjoy a peaceful, meditative day doing pencil work in lovely Heron Hall. All drawing levels are welcome. Suitable for 12 year olds and up (children under 15 years of age must be accompanied by an adult). A supply list will be provided.


Nina Antze is a Sonoma County botanical artist and quiltmaker. She has a degree in Fine Art from San Francisco State and a Certificate in Botanical Illustration from the New York Botanical Gardens. She teaches colored pencil and botanical workshops throughout the Bay Area. Learn more about Nina at her website.
