This taster session will focus on close-up observational drawing as well as achieving quick preparatory sketches to use in later compositions. With demonstrations, advice and individual tuition as you work, this is a perfect workshop for beginners or those looking to improve their drawing technique. Materials will be provided including sketchbooks, paper, a variety of artist quality graphite pencils, graphite sticks, boards and stools. You can, of course, bring your own materials if you prefer.
This course is suitable for beginners, as well as those with some prior experience.
You are likely to be outdoors for as much of the morning as possible, so please do come along suitably dressed for the weather and prepared to work out in the Garden.
After graduating in graphic design at Middlesex University, Caroline specialised in medical and botanical commissions for a number of years, including the British Heart Foundation, Hunterian Museum and recently filming with BBC1’s Countryfile. As a botanical artist she works in pencil and watercolour to record the beauty found in everyday nature, beginning most of her work ’en plein air’, recording a snapshot that she can take back to the studio to work on in further detail. As well as exhibiting her own work in galleries, Caroline regularly teaches children and adults to draw and paint.
The wearing of face coverings is requested whilst in the Classroom, and all indoor facilities at the Garden, unless you are exempt.
