Description: Found throughout Maryland, the dogwood tree is a dearly beloved harbinger of spring. This watercolor class taught by Lee D’Zmura will focus on the history, folklore, and botany of the dogwood’s delicate flowers as participants create a watercolor botanical art piece. Various techniques for painting leaves, including colored pencil and watercolor and dry brush, will be demonstrated. Some watercolor experience is necessary.
