A two-day art class in the beautiful surrounds of the Royal Botanic Garden with popular tutor Charlotte Thodey.
A practical search for solutions in the 'Still Life' genre with an emphasis on composition, tone, and colour. Explore your individual style, ranging from a loose open brush to a finely detailed work. You will use seasonal fruit, foliage, vegetables, china and linen as props and learn to make big decisions about small things and clear the mind.
Includes refreshments and lunches each day in the beautiful surrounds of the Botanic Gardens.
