Janie Pirie – (Botanical Pencils)

  • Acclaimed pencil artist from Colchester
  • Member of SBA
  • RHS gold medal winner and Best Botanical Artist in Show 2009

Proper Pencil art requires techniques that need to be worked on steadily and accurately. We see no reason why even beginners shouldn’t benefit from another of the country’s leading pencil and botanical artists. Janie is concentrating on aspects that both complement and develop our other botanical and pencil art courses, but, as you can see, she covers a range of subject matter with her students.

“The course did what it said on the tin, and was very easy to enjoy. The tutor was able to keep everything light and positive, and her work is truly inspiring. The course was structured well and I feel able to continue with the topic beyond the course thanks to help and very helpful notes. Many thanks Janie!!”
“Excellent course. Look forward to coming to another one when possible.
Excellent tutor.”
