Rebecca and Sandy (Art Classes)
This artistic duo form a unique teaching combination with Rebecca's loose style with pen and ink and Sandy's knowledge of watercolour and botanical painting techniques.
A full listing of upcoming workshops can be found here: Discovery Workshops.
Rebecca and Sandy were amongst the last Royal College of Art graduates to study Natural History Illustration under the late Prof. John Norris Wood.
They are both passionate conservationists and work in their own artistic fields of birds and rainforest flower species.
They believe in sharing with their students this love of the natural world through drawing and painting.
Rebecca & Sandy
We hope to imbue our participants with a fresh view of nature while drawing on the history of past artists whose work is held within The Linnean Society's collection and sharing with them the techniques with which to represent it.
