Summer School will resume in 2024
Summer School is a short course offered over a period of two consecutive days in either July or August each year.
Ideally suited for students who are new to botanical drawing and painting or those who have a little experience but would like to improve. The aim of Summer School is to address some of the fundamental skills and techniques for successful botanical art and illustration.
Course content focusses on drawing and painting with precision and accuracy through a series of set exercises, including drawing technique, painting techniques, colour theory, composition and botany. By the end of day two you will have produced a small botanical illustration to take home, where you have practised these basic techniques.
Summer School is normally offered at Mannings Heath (Leigh Ann’s home) but will be relocated to a nearby venue whilst building works are in progress.
