Learn how to paint flowers and plants, known as Botanic Art or Botanic Illustration.
These intensive courses are an introduction to botanical art via pencil and watercolour.
Students will begin to develop skills in outline drawing, foreshortening, tonal work and rendering of surfaces, basic colour work and paint application.
The cost of the course includes equipment to be used during the workshop – drawing materials, paint, watercolour paper and brushes; and morning and afternoon tea.
All students new to botanical art must complete a Beginners’ Workshop prior to entering term classes.
Beginners’ Workshop date
The next Beginners’ Botanic Art Workshop will begin on Saturday 25 July. The classes will be presented from 1-3pm each Saturday over an eight week term online via Zoom. To participate in the class, you will need a computer/laptop or iPad with functioning camera. This allows your tutor to interact with you and provide feedback about your progress.
