November's topic is Product Photography. Danielle Mapes will be there to advise on what works, industry standards, photographing for print vs digital media, and more! Come by with questions, ideas, and your own experiences to share.

This event is at Ballard Beer at 2050 NW Market St, just down the street from Push/Pull. This venue is 21+.

"A Walk in the Park" by Maxx Follis-Goodkind - Book Release Party

Please join us for the release of Maxx Follis-Goodkind's latest book, A Walk In The Park.

A Walk In The Park features Maxx's lessons and sketches from her botanical art sketching classes at the Carl English Botanical Garden in Ballard. Between lessons are watercolor paintings and anecdotes from her time spent in the Garden. The book is printed on watercolor and mixed media paper and hand-assembled by Maxx.

Maxx will be presenting a mini botanical drawing lesson during the opening, at approximately 6:30pm. Bring your sketchbook and a pencil to draw along. This is a free lesson for anyone that attends, and we will be working with cut botanical specimens.

Books are available for purchase the night of the book release. Each book is full color, 36 pages, $20.

Maxx Follis-Goodkind teaches botanical sketching classes at the Carl English Botanical Garden almost every Monday morning from March through September. 2022 was the second year of these lessons. Each lesson includes getting to know several plants in the Garden, their structural and cultural information, followed by drawing or painting. Classes will resume in March 2023! This event is your chance to get a sample of the lessons and a bit of the joy of spring and summer during the gray months.
