Description

Artful:Botanics at Norfolk School of Gardening SUMMER TERM

An exciting & enriching course designed by artist and art educator Lucy Perry to immerse students in a world of flora & natural forms through a variety of expressive artistic techniques in a range of media.

Each day will focus on a different media/technique. £100 per day includes all materials, coffee/tea. 

SATURDAY 20th APRIL 2024 Beautiful Blooms:
Lucy will guide students through explorations of colourful blooms in a variety of water-based mediums, creating vibrant and lively studies using a range drawing and brushwork techniques. As the day unfolds, students have the freedom to select a specific subject and method for more in-depth exploration. 

SATURDAY 11th MAY 2024  Drawing in the Garden:
We will be in the garden (whatever the weather, so come appropriately kitted out!) sketching en plein air to observe and record plant forms and spaces in a variety of ways using experimental and creative drawing techniques.
After a structured set of exercises students will have the opportunity to select their favourite areas of the garden for longer, in-depth studies.

SATURDAY 13th JULY 2024 Artful Cyanotypes - wet cyanotype process. 
Learn the fascinating technique of wet cyanotype printmaking  - another exciting way to directly capture botanical forms using the power of the sun. It’s the most perfect way to capture botanical forms - wet cyanotypes are fascinating, organic exposures full of colour and pattern.

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who loves natural forms and wants to find exciting ways to explore them artistically. You might be at the beginning on your art journey or you might be an artist or designer with lots of experience but looking for new ideas and the opportunity to take part in new art practices with like-minded folk….new ways of seeing leading to new possibilities. It will also provide you with an opportunity to relax and focus on mindful activities; restorative and connected to nature.
