with tutor Sandy Grant
Art Classes in the Botanics offer a range of tutored drawing and painting classes open to everyone. We started out in 2007 as weekly life drawing classes which still continue every Tuesday evening. Since then the art classes, based in Glasgow's west end, have expanded in number and variety; offering courses in oil painting, portraiture, drawing skills and many more.
Complete beginners are welcome at every course.
Alongside the regular courses Art Classes in the Botanics also holds annual painting holidays in southern Spain and southern France.
The Glasgow Botanic Gardens are an ideal setting for anyone wishing to develop their artistic abilities. In the heart of the westend, the Botanics are easy to reach and offer a quiet oasis in the middle of this busy part of the city. The venue for the classes and courses is the Hopkirk Building; a perfect, bright studio space in a quiet corner of the gardens behind the main range of glasshouses. All classes are very relaxed and friendly. Everyone is welcome.
Anyone can learn to draw and paint - all you need is enthusiasm!
We all have far more artistic ability than we are aware of; with the right approach and guidance, everyone who wishes can produce amazing drawings and paintings.
