Beauty in the Details: Winter Twigs and Dormant Buds

Identifying a dormant deciduous tree is not nearly as complicated as it might seem at first glance. Dormant twigs are bursting with beautiful energy, textures, colors and details that can help provide complete information even before leaves appear. Learn how to use a dichotomous key during the process of elimination and, with guided observation, identify your chosen specimen. Add your new knowledge to your artistic interpretation as you develop a mixed media field guide illustration to capture the dormant beauty of your specimen in ink and colored pencil.


Prerequisites: Botanical Illustration in Pen and Ink I and Botanical Illustration in Colored Pencil I.


Fee: $315 member, $375 non-member (includes “Identification of Trees and Shrubs in Winter using Buds and Twigs” by Bernd Schulz).



Tue, Jan. 15, 22, 29, Feb. 5, 12, 9 a.m. – noon
