Enquiries welcome for classes
( 7 weeks class)
Botanical art is a unique and specialised form of art which portrays a plant with precision and detail to bring out their realistic beauty.
The class starts with a brief introduction. It further elaborates into the prerequisites of botanical art and watercolours through pencil sketching, shading with light and tone, water colouring, and then progress towards the finer details of the object.
This class aims at developing skills in outline drawing, tonal rendering and water colour application for botanical art. It is perfect for people who want to learn the skill gradually, practicing with different specimens.
This module is ideal for both intermediate and beginner level.
