Botanic Art Classes

The Friends host botanic art classes every day over an eight-week term in Domain House adjacent to the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.

Depending on your class and skill level, tutors may work on a specific skill or project for a term.

Get to know our tutors and their teaching styles before choosing which class you might like to join. Our tutors have exhibited locally and internationally therefore you will be learning from some of the very best artists in Australia.

All students must be current members of the Friends to participate in classes and you must have completed a Beginner’s course before you are able to enrol in a class. If you have learnt botanic art at another location, please contact the Friends to discuss options available to you.

Currently Term 2 2020 classes are being delivered online due to COVID-19 restrictions.
