Series: Bamboo Drawing Tools & Homemade Media – NEW!

September 11, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Wednesday, happening 7 times


Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is excited to continue a partnership with The Contemporary Austin Art School! Drawing and watercolor classes will be taught in our McDermott Learning Center, a beautifully restored 19th-century carriage house nestled in the gardens.

Bamboo is an invasive species, so we may as well harvest it to make something useful. Explore ecology and art and learn how to incorporate bamboo into a personal drawing practice. Delve into the poetic aesthetic of a limited natural palette and learn to translate your style into these exciting raw media as a grittier, more natural version of your visual language emerges. No previous drawing experience required.

This class is part of a 7-class series
Wednesdays, Sept. 11 – Oct. 23, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Registration is required and space is limited.
