About this course

Explore the wonders of botanical painting and drawing with flowers from the grounds at Schumacher College. Learn simple techniques in watercolours, inks and drawing and immerse yourself in an afternoon developing your creative side.

No experience required, though the workshop will also be suited to intermediate artists looking to enrich their practice.

what to bring

All basic materials and paper are supplied. Please bring your own paintbrushes.


Our courses are part of the wider Learning programme at Dartington, and you will join a community of students on site studying at Schumacher College and Dartington Arts School as well as other short course participants, volunteers and visitors.

While you are here we invite you to take part in our learning community life by attending morning meetings, taking part in activities such as meal preparation and clearing, and evening social events. This is entirely voluntary, but participants tell us that taking part adds to their experience at Dartington.
