The Mount Nelson in Cape Town will host its second series of botanical painting classes by a master artist in September, following the success of last year’s classes Designed by botanist and collector Dr Shirley Sherwood, the two-day and five-day classes are part of her world-wide initiative to raise awareness of the quiet renaissance of botanical art. Master artist will be Jenny Phillips who runs the Botanical Art School in Melbourne and the fledgling Botanical Gallery.

Students will cover aspects such as drawing, observation, light and form, contours, surfaces and colour.
