Friday, February 17, 5:00pm - 6:30pm PST

Come paint all sorts of fungi from our wildest imaginations in this mycology inspired session! We’ll be learning how to successfully layer our watercolors to illustrate mushroom caps, gills, and stems. We'll start with a few warm up exercises which will help to inform a mushroom-forest composition. There are so many different kinds of mushrooms out there so we’ll be covering many varieties, exploring their shapes and forms. In her spare time Melanie has grown her own culinary mushrooms, and is fascinated by their colors, aromas, and how fast they grow!

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 2:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!
