Botanical art workshops, suitable for beginners
An online tutorial for beginners to botanical art. I've been teaching for several years and I know that students often have problems painting leaves, and there is also a lot of interest in Eucalyptus leaves. So I decided to work this tutorial around our beautiful Eucalyptus leaves and the watercolour techniques which can be applied to them. The tutorial is aimed at beginners but artists with some experience will also gain knowledge of my techniques.

Botany and Botanical Drawing- Beginner Level
. Cost $160. Dates: variable; this course is offered at different times throughout the year.
Are you interested in plants and art but not sure if you have the aptitude for botanical art? Everyone can draw, given a little bit of time and guidance. Come spend a few hours with botanist and artist, Dr Tanya Scharaschkin, for an introduction to both botany and botanical art. You will be guided through the process of observing plants and learning to draw them accurately. The basic steps of botanical drawing will be demonstrated gradually over four weeks, allowing you time to practice between sessions. By the end of the course, you should feel comfortable drawing leaves and simple flowers, be able to dissect flowers and have a general understanding of basic botany and botanical terminology.
