Botanical Art Group

The Botanical Art Group formed in 2003 for members of the Friends with a special interest in botanical art, drawing and painting.

The aim of the Group is to foster the role of, and promote botanical artists and illustrators and provide a forum for those wishing to pursue this exacting art form.

  • There are about 15-25 regular artist members with a wide variety of skills, from beginners to semi-professionals.

  • The Group meet weekly on Saturdays, 12-4pm, in the Lecture Room, Goodman Building, on Hackney Road, Adelaide Botanic Gardens.

  • There are no formal classes on a weekly basis, but members share ideas, discuss projects, offer constructive advice and paint or draw in their chosen medium. Each brings their own drawing/painting equipment and something to draw.

  • A small fee is charged when attending the weekly group, Workshops are fee paying.

Members hold exhibitions biennially.

  • The next exhibition is 2023

 

Attend Saturdays regularly or occasionally, or just for workshops.
