The Botanicals Art Class went beautifully. I had some really enthusiastic students who were excited to get indoor and outdoor drawing of various wildflowers. Some of the students were so motivated that they tried out drawing some of the more intricate flowers, like horse mint and passionflowers. As usual, I learned something from the teaching experience. By having to explain how to 'see' what you are drawing, I learned how to see all over again! I was amazed at the variety of styles in drawing, as well. You would think that if you were all drawing the same thing, it would come out the same. Nope! One of the students only saw the outlines, and nothing inside that. One of the students saw the flower in a Victorian style, with heavy shadows and contrast. One of the students was technically perfect in every detail. The diversity was delightful and reminded me that each of us is different in how we see the world...our worlds. Each persons' universe is unique. What an exciting experience this was for me! Thank you, thank you, for the chance to learn once again!
