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.
A plant/plants or some flowers
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.

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!
