Botanical Art

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 27 Oct ’18, 9:30am – 4:00pm


Wellington High School, 249 Taranaki St, Wellington



Botanical art goes back centuries and was how plants were recorded long before photography was invented. Bring your favourite bloom or a picture and recreate it in pen and paint.

A one-day workshop where you’ll complete a botanical artwork, creating a lifelike and life-size drawing and painting of your chosen flower.

Bring along a flower of your choice - spring bulbs or summer flowers are ideal.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to:
- Discuss aspects of, and define, botanical art
- Describe appropriate materials
- Measure a specimen to be able to recreate accurate and life-size proportion
- Create an initial sketch and use pen and ink and paints
- Mix colours to correctly copy flowers and leaves to create a life-like painting

Bring an A4 watercolour pad, drawing pencils (HB, 2B and 6B), a set of watercolour pencils or watercolour paints, a kneadable eraser and a 30cm ruler.
