Adult Masterclass: Botanical Illustration

Slow your pace and learn to look at flowers in a new way.

When, Where

Painting nature has always captured people's imaginations and this masterclass is a chance to let it capture yours. Join professional botanical artist and tutor Elaine Searle to experience the close observation and attention to detail that the practice requires, slowing your pace and making you look at flowers in a whole new way. 

Using watercolour as our medium this lively session will combine presentation with a hands-on approach, giving you a chance to explore the possibilities of the medium and subject. Botanicals are everywhere: on furnishings, on giant canvases and on the fashion catwalks.

So, whatever your artistic interests - and whether you are an illustrator, arts educator, teacher, student or someone who is simply longing to capture the beauty of flowers - come along to learn a new skill and see where your ingenuity leads you.
