To draw what one sees without prejudice takes something very like courage.
Matisse

On this drawing course students will explore city gardens from St James’ Park to St Pancras Old Church Gardens and the vast assortment of landscapes and conservatories at Kew. Students will take time to draw what they see and importantly, develop ways of imparting what they find. Students will consider the plant’s aesthetic function: why are we drawn to represent them on paper; what is it about plant life that resonates in us? We will look at the roles of perception and memory in drawing and representing Nature, considering what Matisse called ‘the essential character’ of things.

* In case of wet weather we will have access to conservatories, greenhouses and London’s indoor gardens.
