The Secret Life of Plants – Art Course

Sundays 7th January to Sunday 3rd June 2018 

10.00am to 4.00pm

Improve your botanical illustration and gardening knowledge with 6 fun exploratory workshops. Follow the story of plant life through the seasonal cycle and study the forms and functions of plant parts. Drawing plants with botanical precision sharpens observation of flower and habit features, deepening plant understanding and easing identification.

SYLLABUS:

Week 1, 7th Jan - Fruits, seeds, nuts and seed dispersal

Week 2, 4th Feb - Winter twigs and stem structures

Week 3, 4th Mar - Germination and growth

Week 4, 8th Apr - Leaves and photosynthesis

Week 5, 6th May - Roots and asexual reproduction

Week 6, 3rd June - Flowers and sexual reproduction

Each workshop (except the first) starts with a review of home studies. We share what we have discovered in our own lines of interest. After coffee there is a presentation on the subject for the week, with living examples, discussions and microscope observations. After lunch the group gets down to some serious drawing and painting of their chosen specimen. Your tutors Sally Pinhey and Margaret Tebbs will give individual attention during this time, concluding with the individual home study projects for the month ahead.
