Join artist Helen Byers in this 3-day Zoom workshop to refine your drawing skills with a focus on nature. Through live sessions, including in-depth demonstrations, participants will be guided in the delights and challenges of natural science drawing. Working from life or photos, our subjects will be stones, shells, and feathers. Learn and practice illustration techniques on paper using graphite, colored pencil, and/or watercolor to achieve accurate proportions, tones, and textures. Some drawing experience helpful. To see Helen’s work and slideshows from her courses, visit her website at helenbyers.com.

“Helen is one of the best drawing instructors I have ever had. I learned more in one 2-day workshop with her than I did in a semester of Drawing in college.”

“Your class is the best thing I’ve ever done as an artist to learn more and be inspired. Honest. Best class ever.”

“Great experience—fabulous instructor.”
