Botanical Illustration is precise detailed work, a combination of art and science. This studio based watercolour course is for all ability levels: no experience of art or botany is required, just commitment. We aim to enjoy working in an atmosphere of relaxed industry. Students will work at their own pace on the subject of their choice. The course will cover the use of basic materials and methods for beginners and will offer professional advice to advanced students. The emphasis will be on individual development.

Tutor: Susan Hillier
