Cornell Garden-Based Learning will again offer our suite of three botanical illustration courses on-line this June. This web-based instruction is highly supportive and individually directed, and can be taken from any location in the world with internet access. Botanical Illustration (BT) 1: Basic Drawing Techniques is aimed at the beginner who is getting started with drawing, or returning to it after many years. BT 2: Working with Watercolor is for the beginning watercolor painter, and BT3: Advanced Technique is ideal for the student who is ready to commit to going further with proficiency, technique, media, and portfolio development. Courses last for just 6 1/2 weeks, and are $500 per course; our course fee will increase in 2013. You can receive a certificate of participation from Cornell University’s Office of Continuing Education for each course. Students who complete all three courses receive a certificate of completion from the Department of Horticulture.
If you have never taken an on-line course before, this could be ideal for you. Individualized instruction, reflective writing, and the opportunity to converse with others in a forum are our signature elements.
You will need: a recent version of an internet browser, such as Firefox or Internet Explorer; Acrobat reader, so that you can read pdf’s; a good, working scanner, which you will use to scan your work, save it in jpg or pdf format, and upload to the interface.
To learn more about how to enroll, please visit the Department of Horticulture distance learning website, at Cornell University.
We hope you join us, and look forward to ‘meeting’ you on-line!
