Do you like to draw? Do you enjoy the holiday season? Why not combine the two and enroll in “Holiday Botanical Greeting Cards” with Dorota Haber-Lehigh?
This workshop, sponsored by the Friends of the Seaside Library, takes place at 1:00 p.m on Saturday, December 2nd, 2018.
Local artist and illustrator, Dorota Haber-Lehigh, will introduce the fascinating realm of botanical illustration.
Botanical illustration is the art of depicting the form, color, and details of plant species; these are often accompanied by a description in books, magazines, or media.
Participants in this workshop will create a winter botanical card to celebrate the Holiday Season.
Whether you are celebrating Hanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, or the New Year, you can create a card depicting the gifts of nature.
Bring a plant, fruit, nut, flower, pine cone, or any botanical item that personally symbolizes the holidays. The cards created in this class will be a one-of-a-kind delight for friends and family.
