This course is designed for students with some experience of botanical painting, who wish to develop their own work and experiment with a variety of approaches to portray the subjects provided.

All students will benefit from some one-to-one time with the tutor and group discussion. All tools and materials will be supplied, together with some plants, flowers, fruit and vegetables to study.
