Drawing Club information and blog posts
Drawing Growth – learn about plants by drawing to observe how they grow.
Drawing Growth is a free weekly drawing club. All welcome, beginners to ‘pros’.
You can draw together with others – always very friendly and encouraging – or find your own quiet corner and draw.
We often have a project running, where we are tracking the growth through seasons of one particular plant, eg the pear tree in the Orchard, Daffodil bulbs, a broad bean, tomato plants, the apricot tree. We share a communal drawing diary that is always available during the rest of the week for members of Drawing Growth to draw in.
Angie Brew also sometimes teaches short courses at the Greenhouses.

We meet every Thursday at the Greenhouses. The club is free (donations please to the Greenhouses). Find a quiet spot and draw or join in with our tracking growth seasonal drawing projects. All welcome. Contact Angie Brew at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
