Drawn to Nature with Sheena Vallely and Pupgroup

Wednesday 6 October at 11:00 am to Wednesday 8 December at 1:00 pm

| £150

This is a drawing course all about exploring and enjoying the process of drawing. Drawing in nature and from it, can allow you to see how plants relate to one another in their natural habitat and with guidance from your tutor, you will be encouraged to learn how to draw from scratch in direct response to a whole range of plants. The botanic garden in autumn abounds with form and colour and scent and it will be your drawing studio for the entire course.

All drawing materials will be provided and drawing exercises will be varied and plentiful and while standing is encouraged, you are welcome to bring a stool. This is a course for all ages and abilities and social distancing will be an important element when moving around the gardens.


Just to say a huge thank you for getting me back into the world of plants and flowers.
