A fun and focused way to learn both art and science, for ages 11-18. Everyone creates their own small acrylic painting in this joyful exploration of composition and color using close-up photos of your choice of flower.
Templates of the image are available if needed, but students are welcome to draw their image free-hand. Everyone will be encouraged to express their individuality and find their artistic voice.
All supplies are provided for class.
Instructor, Janus Lee
Janus’ Story:
Early in life, Janus Lee was drawing different types of identifiable leaf shapes with crayons. As a college undergraduate in art, design, and biology she took every botany class possible, with the goal of an eventual masters degree in botanical illustration or biological communication. Then, after working for a decade as an illustrator and graphic artist, Janus began earning her masters degree in Asian Medicine, and was then one of the first in Texas to pass the national board exam in Chinese herbal medicine in 2000. In addition to being an artist and illustrator, Janus has practiced Asian medicine (including herbalism) for most of her 25 years in Texas.
Returning to art in 2014 at St. Edward’s University Janus studied Education, Art History, Watercolor, and Sequential Art, the latter for her upcoming graphic novel, ‘The Man Who Made War on Chicago’. For three consecutive years at Austin’s Prizer Arts & Letters *Farmer as Artist* exhibits, Janus showed her botanically oriented art, and also exhibits in galleries throughout Texas and neighboring states. Since 2017, Janus has also been teaching drawing and painting for all ages at a variety of central Texas venues.
Janus is the featured artist for Summer 2022 at Lost Pines Art Center through the first three weeks of August. See some of her work here, from her ‘American Dreams: Lost & Found’ exhibit: https://youtu.be/zslo1yPM2Rg
