Through a series of exercises, you will experiment with abstraction and exaggeration to capture the essence and energy of your favorite flora and achieve dramatic visual effects. Drawing skills are not needed, but participants should have a strong interest in developing their own design language and unique visual symbols. This class is especially beneficial for the drawing impaired and the tragically literal. This class will change your view of the design process and open your eyes to brand-new possibilities.

This full-day class includes show admission on Friday.
