Drawing Nature, Science & Culture

Have you dreamed of drawing beautiful butterflies, stunning flowers, or artistic panoramas? In partnership with edX, an international non-profit, open-source education platform, the University of Newcastle is offering an online course that will teach you essential skills and techniques that form the base for creating accurate and stunning replications of subjects from the natural world.

Over six weeks, world-standard instructors will show you practical ways to develop your skills and cover the fundamentals of Natural History illustration, from the first observation of a subject in the field to the final replication in the studio. No matter what your current skill level, this course can offer insight into the world around you and change how you observe your surroundings.

The course begins on Wednesday so there’s still time to enrol and begin your artistic journey. The course information and enrolment form are available here
