Beautiful Buds and Blossoms in Colored Pencil

August 15, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Monday-Wednesday, August 15-17

Join instructor Kate MacGillivary for this three-day class focusing on rendering the beautiful details of garden blossoms and buds in colored pencil. Designed for students with some previous drawing experience, this class offers plenty of time to create a beautiful drawing. Students won’t be rushed, and Kate will give them the time and attention needed to get a wonderful feel for the medium of colored pencil. Plant material for students to study and draw will be provided.

Please note this class requires participants to show proof of having received all eligible Covid-19 vaccinations, as recommended for their age by the CDC, in order to participate. Because of the dynamic nature of this situation, we ask that you agree to abide by potential future changes in CMBG’s Covid-19 policy designed to address evolving public health recommendations.

Kate McGillivary discovered botanical art and colored pencils while attending Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration where she graduated with a certificate of completion. Every winter, Kate sits at her drawing table and depicts many of the plants she nourishes in the landscaping season or discovers while traveling. Kate’s chosen medium of colored pencils fulfills her desire to capture the wonderful, fine details of plants, allowing her to add layer upon layer, making it seem as if one could pluck the subject right off of the paper.
