Drawing Workshop: Botanical

Arts and Crafts

Event Description

December’s class will be on the theme of ‘Botanical drawing’. Through the hour and a half class we will explore playful ways of capturing plant life, followed by a sustained drawing using a broad tonal range. Students will have an opportunity to focus on detail as well as overall composition.

Materials needed:

A plant/plants or some flowers

Pencil

Paper

Eraser/Rubber

Sharpener

In January we will have an opportunity to build on this botanical theme and introduce using ink or watercolour. If you’d like to join the January class I suggest purchasing black Indian ink, or using black watercolour paint.

  • Duration: 90 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)

Meet the Host, Caitlin

Caitlin Heslop (b.1990) is a London based artist working predominantly in pencil, pastel and oil paint. Caitlin loves drawing from nature and from memory, this dualistic way of working brings a dreamlike quality to her work. Caitlin set up Barely Drawing in 2016, a drawing collective aimed at gathering individuals together both in person and online to cultivate creativity within community.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
