Online Workshops

Workshop 1.     Wild and Garden Blooms.    June 2, 3, 2021.                                     

Workshop 2.   A Summer Garden.      June 24, 25, 2021

Demonstrations will include:

  • observational drawing

  • colour mixing and matching, 

  • capturing light and shade, 

  • layering of colours, 

  • painting fine detail

  • finishing with a WOW! 

To make the experience as stress free as possible, I will provide an image and a line drawing of a simple flower or plant subject for anyone who wishes to use it. For those who choose to draw their own subject, I’ll suggest a simple subject, – wild poppy / petunia. Students will have time to do some observational drawing in the class. 

The workshops will happen over two days – 5 hours per day.

I’m happy to discuss with you any individual or group workshop requirements.

Workshops can be based in Ireland or anywhere in the world. I’m happy to travel to where you are to share the joy of botanical art through reflective art practice.

As an art educator with many years experience, teaching botanical art brings together my three passions of painting, plants and working with people.


Further Updates for Workshops in 2021 will follow.
