Whether you are an aspiring artist, avid naturalist, or adventurer, this short, concentrated program is sure to expand your skills in illustrating the natural world. With a focus on observation and art skills, this course will allow you to confidently sketch outdoors. As you observe 3D nature objects such as skulls and flowers, and you will learn fundamental skills such as proportion, sighting, and perspective. Using multimedia materials such as pencil crayons or watercolour, you will add detail, value and colour to your illustration. By the end of this course, you will have a beautiful sketchbook filled with nature illustrations. Beginners welcome!

Libby Pryor

Libby is a self-taught artist; spending time in the backcountry as a child, a sketchbook and paint were usually in hand. Libby continues to explore outdoors, forging a connection to, and an understanding of the natural world. These moments inspire work which is grounded in nature, urging others to experience, and respect our natural spaces. Libby uses watercolors and acrylics to render the natural world; in 2020 she gained her certificate in Natural History Illustration while staying on an off-grid island in the Broughton Archipelago!
