Online Workshops & Tech Talks

  Online workshops received anywhere in the world

Online workshops – convenient and effective

One of the few positive impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the development of online botanical art workshops. I’ve been fortunate to benefit from not only my own experimenting with this medium but also that of others.

I teach 3-day online workshops regularly for the Dundas Valley School of Art (DVSA). In addition to that, I also deliver short (one or two-hour) topic-specific online presentations for botanical art organizations, and conduct personally-arranged online workshops. I support my workshops with e-booklets available from the Bookstore on this site. You can see reviews of my workshops on the Reviews page of this site and on my portfolio site.

Drawing from live specimens

Please understand that I conduct my workshops according to a strict principle that the botanical art process starts with a live specimen. I do not draw or colour-match from digital images or photographs and I do not teach that way either. Consequently, I do not believe in providing drawings or photographs to workshop attendees. I support every workshop with an e-booklet available from the Bookstore page.
