Botanical Painting with Jacqui Pestell MBE, various dates
This is a fabulous opportunity to spend a day painting with the talented and renowned Botanical Illustrator Jacqui Pestell MBE of Edinburgh Royal Botanical Garden. She will be setting up her studio here at Narcissus Flower School and be our visiting 'Artist in Residence' for the day.
In this informal class, Jacqui will demonstrate the process of making a beautiful flower painting, and will guide you through the process of observation, drawing and painting, using a variety of techniques to help you create your own beautiful piece.
We will set up a variety of inspirational, seasonal floral combinations, sometimes in interesting containers to study, with a demonstration of how we put them together. If you love flowers and painting this is the perfect learning environment for you! All paints, brushes and paper will be provided but do bring your own if preferred and you will have the opportunity to take home the flowers you have painted! A delicious lunch and refreshments throughout the day will also be provided.
We will be running the following on Sundays 11-4pm
Autumn 10th September
Winter 26th November
These can be booked individually or as a block of four. Each day is sure to be creative and inspirational. This class is suitable for beginners as well as those with some drawing and painting experience.
