BOTANICAL ART COURSES, SCOTLAND

The SSBA is delighted to announce that the SSBA Botanical Art Introductory and Intermediate courses in the south and north of Scotland are now available for booking of the October 2022 or to note interest in the April 2023, October 2023 and April 2024 courses.

The courses are available due to the award to the SSBA of the Finnis Scott Foundation Botanical Art Prize. This is a biennial prize of £10,000 awarded to support and promote the practice of botanical art.

The courses are open to SSBA members and members of the public who are interested in learning and developing their botanical art skills.

The courses will be provided free of charge to participants, although they will have to pay for their own travel, accommodation, breakfast, dinner and recommended art materials.

If you live in the south or north of Scotland, would you be interested in attending? Or do you know anyone who would like to learn or develop their skill?

More information is available in the attached information document and we encourage anyone interested to apply or note their interest (follow the links in the document).

SSBA Win Prestigious Finnis Scott Foundation Botanical Art Prize

The SSBA have been awarded the Finnis Scott Foundation Botanical Art Prize. This is a biennial prize of £10,000 awarded to support and promote the practice of botanical art.

Most Botanical Art courses are held in the central belt of Scotland, yet the SSBA has members from all over the country. In order to help those who live in more remote areas, we will provide tutor led courses in the north and south of Scotland. These courses will be open to SSBA members and members of the public who are interested in learning and developing their botanical art skills.

Over 2 years we will run 8 weekend courses, free of charge to participants, although they will have to pay for their own travel, accommodation and meals and recommended art materials.

Year 1 there will be 2 beginner courses in autumn and 2 in spring. Year 2 there will be 2 intermediate courses in autumn and 2 in spring. There will be 12 places per course.

We are delighted that this funding allows us to realise plans we’ve had for some time to aid those who don’t have easy access to face to face courses taught by experienced tutors in areas out with the central belt.
