Painting and drawing course - Botanical illustration

In this course students learn how to use different drawing materials, such as charcoal, lead and other types of pencil and drawing instruments.

You will be introduced to the various types of paper and canvas and will be shown how to use each of these effectively.

Besides traditional drawing with the pencil and painting in
tempera, acryllic and oil, this course will also introduce
you to the use of watercolour, which is by far the most
used and reliable medium for botanical illustration.
During the first four weeks students will learn basic
drawing and painting techniques and will study each of
these in greater detail after the firth week.
