MAY 9th, 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?
Each ticket will include an opportunity to explore the gardens, and purchase selected plants. Group demonstrations and one to one tuition. A complimentary drink from the Café, on arrival, before we get started on a calm and relaxed workshop session.
A chance to explore Illustration techniques.
There will be a different genre of Botanical Illustration each month.This May we shall be covering how to paint with watercolours. Learning how to render textures, application and colour mixing. Alongside painting, in a fluid approach, we shall begin with a warm up task
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.
