If you’ve been eager to start learning more about herbs or furthering your studies, The Herbal Academy is returning their holiday sale on herbal courses with up to 25% off site-wide on all of their herbal courses (December 25-January 3). Each one is so unique and robust – I couldn’t recommend them enough. I’m diving into Botanical Drawing for Herbalists in January. “In this mini course, you will achieve the skills and confidence to accurately draw the plants that inspire your herbal studies. Not only will you learn to make personalized botanical illustrations, but you will also begin to see the plants more closely and render them with greater accuracy. As you’ll soon see, drawing is a miraculous study tool that can help you embed a plant’s characteristics in your memory—all while you enjoy a mood-boosting, meditative activity that nurtures your creativity.”. Winter is a beautiful time to really view plant architecture in it’s bare and hibernating form. Doing this course once in winter and again in summer will be such a fun project!
