Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
Established in 1670, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) is comprised of four gardens that collectively represent one of the largest plant collections in the world. The garden is also home to the RBGE Diploma in Botanical Illustration. The diploma course is a two-year program emphasizing observational drawing and the creation of artwork in pencil, pen and ink, and watercolor.
Coming in June 2013
The RBGE Diploma in Botanical Illustration has run successfully for five years as a weekly course in Edinburgh. Beginning this summer, those involved with the program will be able to share their knowledge and expertise with a worldwide audience. The RBGE program has developed an exciting new Blended Learning option – which means there are block study weeks in Edinburgh (two in Year 1, one in Year 2) and the rest of the course is delivered online through their new online system called PropaGate.
Applications are now being accepted for the inaugural class of this new long distance learning opportunity. This new program begins June 2013.
