Create a fresh, seasonal watercolor illustration for the food-lover in your life! In this workshop, we'll explore traditional botanical and scientific illustration techniques with fresh fruits & veggies inspired by live produce in front of us.
Before coming upstairs to join the workshop, peruse Whole Food's amazing selection of fruits & veggies and purchase a favorite item that you'd like to be the subject of your illustration. Think about shape, color and texture as you're making your selection! We'll have a small selection of items that we love for you to pick from as well (if you prefer not to purchase something specific and don't mind sharing with other workshop participants!).
Each participant will work with pencil, watercolor, and ink to create a layered print perfect for framing in the kitchen or patio.
We'll introduce you to the basic properties of watercolor paint and illustrative drawing techniques. You'll experiment with various painting techniques (wet on wet, wet on dry, layering, etc.), while our team provides step-by-step demos and individual guidance.
WHEN: Tuesday, August 29, 1:30-3:00pm
WHERE: Whole Foods Waverly, 7221 Waverly Walk Ave., Charlotte, NC 28277. We'll be creating in the private 2nd floor Community Room, adjacent to the terrace.
