A FEMINIST’S GUIDE TO BOTANY: Online Botanical Painting Session

July 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Our blockbuster FEMINIST’S GUIDE TO BOTANY class is BACK online! Join us for this unique lecture and Botanical Painting session!

This lecture and all our classes are now ‘pay what you can’ so that we can reach those of you who are financially struggling during CV19.

We suggest a donation of £8 but if you love our lectures and you would like to help support us with a little extra (as creatives, it has been very difficult for us too)! We would hugely appreciate that. If you are having a tough time with money, even £5.00 is still amazing, or please feel free to consider this one on the house, and just spread the word instead through FB/INSTA. Love to you all!

————-

Join London Drawing Group as we step inside the magical world of BOTANY for a summer-term special exploring the history of the heroic women artists, explorers and scientists that helped forge the way that we see the world around us!

Drawing from both the rich history of female presence Botanical Art, as well as the inspiring stories of women botanical explorers through the ages, this class will be an incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in the work of artists such as Maria Sybilla Merian, Marianne North, Rachel Ruysch and others!

The session will comprise a 1 hour visual lecture during which you will be able to make quick sketches if you choose, then students will be led in some basic watercolour techniques and exercises to help you create your own Botanical Paintings!

This will truly be a totally unique class and we are very excited to get drawing with you all!
