Monthly classes

Monthly classes are ideal for students who have some experience of botanical drawing and painting and who would like regular feedback and advice about their work. They are also perfect for those who may draw and paint but who do not have regular interaction with other, likeminded artists and those who find it hard to discipline themselves to make progress with their painting at home.

The structure of monthly classes allows you to work at your own pace on your own projects overseen by Leigh Ann, who can offer you help and advice, and goals or tasks for you to achieve by the next session.

Offered in blocks of 4 sessions throughout the year with a choice of either Monday or Tuesday:

  • Autumn/Winter (Sep, Oct, Nov and Dec)
  • Spring/Summer (Apr, May, Jun and Jul)

All classes start at 10am and finish at 3.30pm. Accommodation list available on request.

Monthly classes are normally offered at Mannings Heath (Leigh Ann’s home) but will be relocated to a nearby venue during 2023 whilst building works are in progress.
