Natural History Illustration course

The University of Newcastle has a free 6-week course in Natural History Illustration. According to the web page introducing this course, “The field of Natural History Illustration is about observing and illustrating subjects from nature, science and culture, with their linkages to the environment being central.” Roger Jones from the Lismore Art Club alerted From The Bower to this course – Roger says “I did 80% of the course (holidays excluded the last 20%) approx 2 years ago which was really beneficial to me for developing observation, looking at detail and the natural world.
It involves about 3 hours a week for 6 weeks, posting your work, reviewing others work (worldwide) and computer use.”
