This class is a great introduction to drawing and pen techniques using botany as our main subject. The specific theme for this class: Marigolds. The tools and techniques shared in this workshop are beneficial to creating beautiful florals from the marigold variety in ink. After we explore the breakdown of desert marigolds, Tagetes Lucida, and Tagetes erecta, we will learn how to use composition to create a final piece with all three.
