Botanical Sketching at the Ballard Locks
In-person class Mondays 11am - 12:30pm
Get to know the plants at the Ballard Locks. Join Maxx on Mondays to learn about the plants around the Locks and how to draw them. Students will receive a handout with details on the plant that is the focus for the week and tips on drawing it. Maxx will do a drawing demonstration during the class and students are expected to draw along and ask questions.
Students should bring their own paper or sketchbook, a hard surface to draw on (such as a clipboard), and pencils or pens.
You're welcome to join for as many, or few, classes as you're able to as each session is designed to stand alone. Maxx will be at the gate of the Ballard Locks at 10:45am to start meeting students and we will move to the location in the gardens at 11am. If class is canceled due to weather conditions, you will receive an email at least 24 hours before the class begins and will be able to get a full refund.
Students will receive instructions on any health precaution requirements with their confirmations at least 48 hours before their scheduled session.
Maxx Follis-Goodkind owes her horticulture teacher a huge apology after she told him she definitely didn't want to get into botanical drawing after she graduated. She now loves combining her knowledge of plants and drawing skills to capture nature in her sketchbook. Her teaching style is to combine a bit of science in with the drawing.
A 4 class series for those eager to jump into Procreate.
Classes are online via Zoom:
July 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd 6pm - 8pm
All classes will be recorded and available for students to view for at least one month after classes end. Students will also have access to Google Classroom to ask questions, send emails, and access class worksheets.
This 4 class series will cover everything from the basics of Procreate to advanced tips and tricks. This is most of the material that is covered in the Procreate Basics & Procreate Intermediate classes condensed into 8 hours.
Students should have the latest version of Procreate on their iPads and have another device to watch class meetings on so that they can follow along.
This series is brought to you by Maxx Follis-Goodkind. Maxx has been teaching Procreate classes for nearly a year now at Push/Pull. While she was a slow convert to digital art, she now encourages everyone to try our Procreate because of the possibilities it offers. She loves teaching artists and designers how they can use Procreate to have a faster and easier workflow.
July 27th & 28th 6pm - 8pm
August 4th & 5th 6pm - 8pm
