Botanic Gardens Sketching

  • Day Art Tours Adelaide Botanic Gardens North Tce, Adelaide Australia (map)


Join me for an afternoon of strolling splendour at our very own Adelaide Botanical Garden.

We will meet for coffee at Cafe Fibonacci where I will hand over your Traveling Artist Journal Kits (or bring your own) and give a brief talk and show examples of 'Sketching and Doodling techniques'. There are fun methods and ways to quickly capture impressions of the gardens in your Artist Journals. 

"You don't have to be a great Draftsperson / drawer .... it's about fun and funny attempts to capture on paper what you see. Most importantly you will create a wonderful momento of your day with like minded souls.  So much more meaningful than photo's - although you can take them too for later art works."
