Biomimicry and Biophilic Design: pathways to connect people and nature

Event Date: 
09/15/2011 - 5:30pm - 9:00pm
Event Location: 
Downstairs at Town Hall
Eighth and Seneca
Seattle, WA
United States
Phone: 206 443 8464

Over hundreds of millions of years, nature has evolved elegant and
creative solutions to many design problems. We’ll explore how using
biomimicry (mimicking nature) and biophilic design (increasing
our exposure to nature within our built environment) can help us to
create products, buildings, and communities whose relationships
to nature are positive and robust.

Beginning Botanical Watercolor

Event Date: 
09/28/2011 - 7:00pm - 10/26/2011 - 9:30pm
Event Location: 
Douglas Classroom, Center for Urban Horticulture
3501 NE 41st Street
Seattle, WA 98105
United States
Phone: 206-685-2590

Instructor: Kathleen McKeehen, Botanical Artist and Instructor

Learn the basics of classical botanical watercolor painting, which will include techniques in measurement, drawing, and understanding how light reveals form, along with practice in color mixing. The application of controlled washes and dry-brush technique will contribute further, producing an image that is three-dimensional, accurate, and aesthetically appealing--the goal of botanical painting--and equally effective in painting other subjects realistically.
