Report on Botanical & Nature Illustration Workshop
Saturday 09 March 2019

Tutor - Julie Catherine Price

We are delighted to announce a third annual workshop for artists from local schools.   Six students from Fortrose Academy and two students from Dingwall Academy were given the opportunity to learn a completely new skill in drawing and watercolour.    The workshop took place in the Tutor`s studio in Cromarty.   A nominal booking fee of £5 was paid by each student.

Julie Price trained at Plumpton College, Sussex  and has since exhibited at the Society of Botanical Artists exhibition in 2000, and was awarded an RHS medal at the RHS`s annual exhibition in London in 2004.    In 2012 she was awarded the prestigious Diploma in Botanical Watercolour Painting (with credit). and in 2018 was invited to join Amicus Botanicus, a society for the alumni of Chelsea School of Botanical Art.

She was delighted to meet and teach the students, who from the start of the day were interested, focussed and applied themselves to the practical aspects of watercolour techniques.   As with our other workshops, the final year students can add these watercolours to their portfolios for submission to an art college.    We hope that some of their work will be on display at the annual exhibition of students work at the May lecture.
