Explore observational drawing and create beautiful studies of natural objects and plants in this nature drawing workshop series.
In these sessions you will draw natural history specimens and plants from life – with a chance to experiment with a range of drawing mediums including fine line pen, biro, quill and ink, chalk and charcoal, alla prima oils, and watercolour. Each session will explore a different media.

We will be working from a range of natural history resources, including animal skulls and bones, dried plants and seedpods, fresh leaves and flowers, sea shells and fossils.
