Wildflowers and Weeds 

Taking inspiration from Circadian Rhythms, this season’s Art Club Senior invites participants to learn approaches to botanical drawing and painting. Under the guidance of artist Ciara Rodgers, participants will explore the form, colour and details of plant specimens found in the University College Cork lower grounds. The course will give an introduction to different mediums and techniques including graphite drawing, watercolour painting and pen and ink sketching.
