Draw the Gardens… relaxed drop-in sessions with botanical artists

Like to draw? Join us for monthly relaxed drawing sessions with our artists in residence.

From 1.30 -3.30, on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, artists from the Birmingham Society of Botanical Artists will be in the Gardens drawing and recording our lovely plants.

Anyone can join them for a no hassle, not pressure drawing session – whatever your ability.

As the seasons progress BSBA will record the life cycle of our plants… why not come and have a go yourself. They will be pleased to advise and support… or just leave you to your own devices.

Bring your own materials or take advantage of some basic pen and paper we’ll provide.

Normal entry fees apply but materials and support are free
