About the courses

A Complete Introduction to Botanical Drawing and Painting

Mon 27th – Fri 31st March 2017

This course aims to give you a thorough introduction to drawing and painting plants and combines our two previous introductions into one week-long course. Including a half-day of botanical study, the course aims to help you create a finished piece by the end of the week.

Preparing a Botanical Study Page

Fri 12th – Sun 14th May 2017

This new course will go through everything you need to record to create a botanical study page. This can then be used to produce an accurate piece of botanical art although a study page can be an attractive work of art in its own right.

An Introduction to Botanical Illustration

Fri 6th – Sun 8th October 2017

Our introductory course focuses on botanical drawing from accurate line drawing to shading to create form. The course includes a half-day of botanical study.

All courses will be held in the fantastic surroundings of the Eden Project Mediterranean Biome. Two of our three tutors Ros Franklin, Mally Francis and Laura Silburn will be teaching on each course with a maximum number of 16 students. Courses are suitable for complete beginners or intermediate artists.
