Floral Illustration with Pencil and Pigma Ink Pen

Join Claire Vendetti, owner of Billie Claire Handmade, for a workshop on hand drawn flowers and botanical designs. Fear not - this class is open for beginners; no previous drawing skills required!

During this two hour workshop, Claire will walk you through four basic steps to create your own floral drawing. Working from a photo, we will convert each petal into an easily approachable shape; and from there - we will cover the steps needed to add depth and dimension to your piece. We will practice a poppy flower together to allow you to rehearse the steps, and then you will have several other flowers to choose from to illustrate on your own! You will walk away with a finished floral illustration, a selection of my favorite illustration tools, and a packet of practice guides and photos to tackle at home.

Tickets: $50



About your host, Claire Vendetti

Claire Vendetti, owner of Billie Claire Handmade, is an illustrator and digital artist, specializing in hand lettering, floral illustration, and graphic design. Her inspiration is driven by the places she's lived, her propensity for profanity, and her desire to connect with others on topics like mental health, body image, and being real. She has spent the last 10 years in Austin, Texas eating tacos and catching glimpses of armadillos and coyotes; and is thrilled to be a newbie to the D.C. area!
