Our Summer Sessions are back in Cornwall. After a long winter break we are excited to announce our next programme of workshops at the idyllic Potager Gardens.
AUGUST 22nd, 10am - 2pm
All workshops are hosted by Sarah Jane Humphrey, an award winning Artist and Best selling Author. Represented by the Royal Horticultural Society, and the Royal College of Physicians. Most recently gaining a Gold Medal for her Botanical Art exhibition of 'Medicinal Fruits and the Symbiosis with their Pollinators', rendered in gouache, at the RHS, Lindley Halls, Westminster, London.
With a growing interest for Botanical Illustration, Sarah hosts a monthly session at the Potager Gardens, in Cornwall. A peaceful setting with a gentle approach to Botanical Illustration. Using mixed media, Sarah will guide you through the cathartic process of choosing plants and flowers to illustrate from the well stocked gardens. With tips and techniques to perfect your skills.
Welcoming all levels to the workshop, from the complete beginner to the confident artist. Sarah will take time to deliver a class and also give everybody one to one tuition, in a light and relaxed environment. Please do bring along your own materials, although paints, paper, pencils etc. will happily be provided on the day, if you don't have your own.
What's included in the ticket?
A chance to explore Illustration techniques.
There will be a different genre of Botanical Illustration each month.This August we take a look at illustrating exotic fruits, exploring the basics of colour theory. As always learning the fundamentals of drawing technique, learning how to render textures, application of paint and colour mixing.
As always we welcome everyone from all backgrounds so whether this is the first time you have tried an art workshop or you have a high skill level Sarah will lead you with enough enthusiasm to make the day a great one.
Please note, cancelations are non-refundable, however we will happily exchange for another workshop on an alternative date, if the space is available.
