Berkshire Botanical Garden
The meadow in Fall is rich with shapes and textures creating exciting sculptural forms to sketch and draw. Flowers and leaves that have lost their radiant color now await winter with wind-shredded petals, twisted dry leaves, and seed-spilling pods. Capture the textures and patterns of pods, the arching curves and angles of dried grasses and leaves. Guided by botanical artist Carol Ann Morley, tell your own visual story with pen and ink or tones of graphite, bringing to life the drama nature has left in the Fall Meadow. Students wishing to work in pen and ink should have prior experience; for graphite, all levels welcome.
Bring a bag lunch.
