A structured ten week flower drawing and painting course designed for both beginners and beyond to gently inspire a contemporary, fresh approach to the art of depicting flowers
Working from a still life set up in the studio, the main focus will be centred on how drawing, using a variety of different media, creates the opportunity to make interesting pictures ranging from representational studies to more abstract images.

As the term progresses, and as you become more visually receptive and perceptive to the characteristics of flowers, adding colour into your work elevates the unique expression of
their inherent beauty.
