2 DAY COURSE - SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS (some drawing/painting experience preferential due to precise style)

This course will focus on botanical drawing and painting techniques with the option of working in watercolour or gouache. Observational skills are a very important part of botanical art so students will be encouraged to work from life by making detailed studies from either plants, leaves, fruit or vegetable specimens. Course tutor Simon Williams will advise on a practical one-to-one basis, giving guidance in observations, colour suggestions and how to paint from the initial base coats to more controlled techniques. this will include rendering textures, contour definitions and colour transitions.

Nature in Art runs courses throughout the year covering a variety of subjects and mediums, catering for all levels from beginners to advanced.

Most courses are run by practicing artists who have work in our collection and/or have been an artist in residence at Nature in Art. The courses are held in our purpose built education centre. Class sizes are kept between 6-12 people to ensure you receive individual attention from the tutor whilst enjoying the social aspect of working alongside others.

Courses at Nature in Art are very popular so book your place now to avoid disappointment!
