Botanic Gardens Trust

For hundreds of years scientific plant drawings have aided the visual identification of plants for both the botanist and plant enthusiast. However, in the hands of a talented botanical artist, illustrations go beyond accuracy and precision and become works of art in their own right.

Under the guidance of award-winning professionals, our Education section has designed a range of Art and Illustration Courses to suit every level of interest, availability and expertise. While the subject matter is predominantly plants, similar techniques are used to illustrate animals.
