By Ruskin School of Art
Last year artist, writer and broadcaster Sarah Simblet taught
The New Sylva: Drawing Trees, a course based on the book she co-authored with Gabriel Hemery, The New Sylva: A Discourse of Forest & Orchard Trees for the Twenty-first Century. Sarah will offer this course again August 11-15, 2017 at the Ruskin School of Art. This 5-day non-residential programme is a fascinating and intensive exploration of trees and landscape, with a major component being fieldwork at Rousham House and its park by William Kent, the seminal landscape designer.
Sarah will also teach Botanical Drawing, a course designed to accompany her book, Botany of the Artist: An Inspiration Guide to Drawing Plants. This is an intensive
7-day programme in August (non-residential), and takes place in the Ruskin School of Art (the Faculty of Fine Art of the University of Oxford), and at the neighbouring University of Oxford Botanic Garden.
Sarah will also teach a number of other amazing courses, including human anatomy. Details can be found on our website.
