Painting Pines with Karen LeGault

Workshop | December 14 | 10 a.m.-4 p.m. |  UC Botanical Garden

 Botanical Garden

As symbols of wisdom and dignity, Pine trees provide shelter, shade and respite.

We will paint our trees using bamboo brushes, sumi-ink and watercolor, we will learn about the brushstrokes in creating paintings of pine trees - working on trunks, branches and needles, until they come together comprehensively in one completed Pine tree painting.

Instructor, Karen LeGault is joyfully committed to visual poetry, light, transformation and healing, through paintings that bring energy and serenity into the world. She has been teaching art for the last twenty years, sharing a lifetime of exploration in drawing and painting arts with adults and children of all ages. Observant and intuitive, she meets you where you are at and encourages you to evolve beyond a momentary limitation. She recognizes that you will bring your own sensibility to the techniques she presents while drawing out your inner artist.
