Learning an art is a journey, it’s personal and involves constant growth and new exciting challenges, and is shared and often taught. The quality of education is important to students and to the Bateman Foundation, we teach art and eco-literacy with passion and experience. One of our students wrote “This was a wonderful experience, facilitated by someone who effectively communicated her love for nature and art. My group felt quite comfortable and was able to take risks with their drawing”.
This 6-week NatureSketch drawing course is taught by Bryony, who guides us through art fundamentals such as line drawing, understanding shapes and shading techniques, with a fresh and fun approach that will encourage budding artists to create beautiful nature sketches. Using eco-literacy principles from world-renowned artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman, we encourage participants to connect to nature through art and observation.
This class will cover 6 animal subjects that the students will learn to draw, and will gain skills to apply the same drawing techniques to as many subjects as they want.
At the end of the program students have the opportunity to submit their art to be put up in the NatureSketch Gallery.
Instructor will email students with finalized details a few days prior to the beginning of the class.
Registration closes 5 days prior to the first day of class.
