Series: Nature and Abstract Drawing

March 26 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

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


Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is excited to announce 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.

Learn how to create abstract drawings using natural forms as inspiration. Class will start with perennials, seedpods, trees, rocks, and water studies and learn how to transform these representational objects into abstract formal compositions that reflect your personal interests. Students will use graphite, charcoal, ink, and a variety of paper surfaces. A group drawing, a final large scale project, study of contemporary artists, and a photo assignment will help you stretch your artistic wings in different directions.

This class is part of a 7-class series.
Thursdays, March 26 – May 7

10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Registration is required and space is limited.
