Instructor: Kathleen McKeehen, Botanical Artist and Instructor
Learn the basics of classical botanical watercolor painting, which will include techniques in measurement, drawing, and understanding how light reveals form, along with practice in color mixing. The application of controlled washes and dry-brush technique will contribute further, producing an image that is three-dimensional, accurate, and aesthetically appealing--the goal of botanical painting--and equally effective in painting other subjects realistically.
Applying foundational insights and tools to real-world projects
In this session, we will create an “action plan” for your project or campaign using a powerful tool called Causal Layered Analysis. You will apply the knowledge and insights from earlier sessions to your work with assistance from the instructor and fellow change makers.
