Botanic Illustration with Adele Pelizzoni

Friday 4 October at 9:30 am to Saturday 5 October at 4:00 pm

| £135

A unique opportunity to study on this fantastic two-day workshop in Botanical Illustration with Adele Pelizzoni, a visiting artist from Italy. 

This two-day workshop will take place in the Botanic Garden and will focus on botanical illustration with coloured pencils. Under an expert eye attendees will learn about drawing plants from life and understanding their different colours, tones and the secrets of capturing them. On the first day you will receive a tour of the Botanic Garden where you will choose a plant that catches your eye and sketch it with pencils; Adele will be on hand for tips and techniques. Day two will focus on completing your piece of art using the skills you have learnt during the workshop

All materials will be provided.

Adele Pelizzoni lives in Bologna, where, after studying at the Academy of Fine Arts, she completed a year of civil service at the University of Bologna Botanical Garden where she discovered naturalistic botany illustration; a year that influenced her first botanical exhibition “Inspiring Botany”.  She now works as a botanical and natural history illustrator for publishers, researchers, private, museums and public organizations. Adele delivers workshops and courses of botanical and naturalistic illustration (with Scuola Internazionale di Comics di Reggio Emilia, Università Primo Levi Bologna and AICS Bologna).
