With all those summer florals in bloom, now’s a great time to learn how to draw some of your favorite flowers and plants using a super easy technique — line drawing! Illustrator and award-winning instructor Peggy Dean is here to teach you botanical art. In her Brit + Co class, Intro To Floral Illustration, you’re going to learn her techniques on how to draw flowers and plants.

You’ll start with basic pen drawing techniques. Then, Peggy will show you how to use colored pencils and brush pens to bring your florals to life by adding a pop of color.

By the end of this class, you’ll have a beautiful floral wreath with a personal hand-lettered message inside. You’ll walk away from this class knowing how to:

  1. Take real-life botanicals and outline them as a flat illustration on paper.
  2. Use colored pencils and brush pens to add a pop of color to your botanical art.
  3. Blend colors to add a watercolor effect into your design using brush pens.

And no need to rush as you practice your skills. Once you enroll in the class, it’s yours forever and on-demand whenever you need to spruce up your technique. See what I did there?

Intro To Floral Illustration is a 64-minute class that includes access to eight lessons and a 13-page course workbook that she created exclusively for this class.
