Drawing in the Glasshouses with Sheena Vallely and Pick Up a Pencil group

Wednesday 2 October 2019 at 11:00 am to Wednesday 11 December 2019 at 1:00 pm

| £115

A drawing course designed to develop and to satisfy most drawing abilities. Providing a unique drawing source, the glasshouses hold botanical collections from climate zones across the world. The objectives for each class, are to learn and develop new drawing skills as a valuable practice, to surprise and to satisfy as a result of intense study.

For experienced and for complete beginners, to share and to encourage dialogue. Individual instruction and guidance on drawing exercises are key elements in every class.

Testimonial: Thoroughly enjoyed the course which made me look at plants in far more detail. I was new to the Botanic Garden and since doing Sheena’s course I have visited the gardens on a regular basis to draw and paint.


Sheena Vallely trained at Liverpool College of Art and at Camberwell College of Arts, London. She exhibits her work nationally and internationally. She established Pupgroup in 2012 to reject old drawing habits and to encourage new ones.
