Plant Illustration For Kids
with Alayna Boots Tinney
Saturday, July 23, 11:00AM-12:30PM
Homestead Apothecary, 486 49th Street,  #C, Oakland, 510-495-6549

Join us to spend time outside in our garden experiencing the plants and exploring techniques for drawing and painting their portraits. The focus of this class is in play, exploration, and finding your own drawing style while spending time in the midst of our flora. We will begin with line and tonal drawing with graphite before moving on to color techniques with paint. All levels of experience welcome, ages 6-12!

She works with the Inclusion Program through the City of Oakland, Creative Growth (a non-profit organization for adult artists with disabilities), is a private art tutor, and is Art Lab Facilitator at the Berkeley Art Museum.
