Learn to illustrate the natural world! We start this activity with a botanical expedition around the studio and it’s outdoor garden where we will collect interesting plants, flowers, shells and other natural objects to be inspired from. We then learn how to realistically draw and paint our illustrations using pencil and watercolours. Perfect for children interested in illustration who are fascinated by nature.

25 January 2018 • January Workshop for Kids - Botanical Illustration

On the day it wasn't immediately obvious what my daughter had absorbed during the workshop but I have since noticed a marked improvement in the way she draws trees and leaves. She enjoyed the lesson and I've enjoyed seeing her take the experience and incorporating it into her drawing abilities.
