Would you like to develop your drawing skills by further drawing from nature? This class offers the opportunity to develop detailed observational drawings from natural history specimens and plants. You will be studying the morphology of various natural forms and how to reproduce these on the page. Over the course of this 3 day residential we will explore a range of drawing media: from graphite through to fine line pen, sanguine chalks (a wonderfully Renaissance medium!) chalk and charcoal, charcoal pencils, homemade walnut and oak gall inks, and even biro. There will be regular demonstrations and tips, with the opportunity to explore different media and subject matter, with a view to completing a detailed study of a specimen or a still life – or just a range of studies if that’s your preference. We will be working from a range of natural history resources, including native animal bones, dried plants and seedpods, seashells, fossils, insects, and fresh plants gathered from the surrounding area. Included in this course will be a visit to Benton End, the former home of The East Anglian School of Art. Students will be able to spend time in the extensive grounds of this beautiful house, with time to study, enjoy and create before returning to Flatford.
