Drawing in Graphite I
Join us for four Tuesdays in January and make good on your New Year's Resolution to learn something new in 2019. This class is for the very beginner or someone what wants to brush up on their drawing basics. Coursework will cover value, perspective, light on form, and accurate measurements, laying the foundation for realistic botanical drawings in pencil. Students can expect some homework each week.
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.
