This 7-week course will extend our focus from Plant Life Drawing 1. We will continue to explore the work of significant artists as we study plants and natural forms through a variety of mediums and processes.

Experimenting with a range of drawing and painting techniques, exploring composition, mark-making and materiality, students will be guided through working on both small format to large scale compositions.
You do not need prior experience for this course - it is for anyone (from complete beginners to experienced artists) who is inspired by the natural world of plants and flowers and would love nothing more than studio time to delve into focused observation and fun experimentation.
