Botanical art workshops in Laois this summer

Exciting art workshops for adults come to Laois Arthouse this summer.

Botanical art challenges us to capture in a painting the essence of a plant, it’s beauty, frailty, strength and intimacy and to do so in a truthful way.

Participants will be guided through the stages of making a botanical painting. Having chosen a subject, practice some observational drawing focusing on light, form and composition before moving on to learning the basics of wet and dry watercolour techniques.

By exploring a vibrant but simple colour palette use transparent layers of colour to bring vitality to your painting.

Suitable for all levels of experience, these workshops with artist Mary Dillon take place from July 2 - July 6 at Laois Arthouse, Stradbally.

Application forms are now available, booking fee is €80. Contact artsoff@laoiscoco.ie, or call 353 57 86 64033/13.
