What you'll do

Join art and plant lover Angéline Catteeuw for a drawing session in the luscious botanic garden of Ghent University, close to the Citadelpark. It's been around since 1902 and is home to more than 10 000 types of plants. We'll visit the tropic or subtropic greenhouse and choose a place to draw. I will bring drawing supplies and also something to drink, since the combination of tropic temperatures and hard work can make you thirsty! If the weather allows us, we can also draw outside.

You can work by yourself, but I'm available to give some feedback if desired.
This class is not about making a perfect image, but about taking time for observation and reflection. I might suggest different drawing techniques to bring you just a tad out of your drawing comfort zone. After all, that's where art starts to get interesting! No worries, there's no specific level of drawing skills required to join this class.

I'm an artist. Painting and drawing are my two great loves. I love to draw people and nature, I adore all organic forms. I'm also a plant addict, so I'm here to combine two of my interests.

Where you'll be

The Ghent University botanical garden is a place that is often left out of traditional sightseeing tours, but well worth the visit! We are a little bit outside of the city center, but very close to the SMAK (Museum of Modern Art) and MSK (Museum for Fine Arts) if you want to visit those before or after the drawing session.
