Ann Swan Workshop

Ann Swan Colored Pencil Workshop
Los Angeles Arboretum
September 2013

14 students were lucky enough to spend 4 days coloring with the amazing 
Ann Swan at the Los Angeles Arboretum.  

It was wonderful having Ann demonstrate all her special techniques of 
Botanical Illustration in Coloured Pencil

Then it was back to the drawing board to try out our new skills

The critique at the end of the workshop was so helpful. 
 Ann is so generous with her knowledge and made us all feel good about our works of art.

Every day we were visited by the Peacocks of the Arboretum.  
They would peek into our classroom windows and wait for us to come out and play.  
Ann had a fun time with them :)

 Last night of class much fun was had at the restaurant "168" on Colorado Blvd in Pasadena.
Great Food, Great Friends!

Looking forward to hosting another workshop with Ann in 2014.  
Send me a message if you would like to get on the mailing list for her next class in California
