Art workshops

I teach art workshops for the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. These are either online or in-person 2 day workshops and cover the depiction of fruits and flowers in various media – I teach both pen and ink and coloured pencil drawing classes.

All of my courses cover observation techniques, basic composition methods and how to produce a drawing of a plant that is to scale, botanically accurate and artistically pleasing. This drawing is then used as the basis of the coloured pencil/ pen and ink artwork.

I am due to start in-person courses at Kew in Spring 2020. Recently these have not been taking place due to Covid.

See some examples of the wonderful work produced by my students below. I have also added some pictures from a children’s art workshop that I ran in summer at Gunnersbury Park – the children did absolutely amazing flower portraits with chalk pastels on black paper!
