The Schoolhouse for Art  welcomes the return of  Yanny Petters Sketch Book sessions this June.

"Sketches help us understand what we see."

This two day Nature sketch book course for all levels.

Yanny will guide you through beginning a sketch book in which you can sketch from your garden, make mono prints and gather information  when you're out and about. Keep notes throughout the year and hone your observational skills. Come and spend two days with artist Yanny Petters drawing and sketching in your book which you can use as a Nature diary througout the year.

A basic tool kit will be provided. Sketch books available € 10 each or bring along your own.

All levels are welcome.

This could be the start of an irresistable habit!

About Yanny

download-5.jpg

Yanny Petters has been painting exquisitely detailed portraits of wild plants since the 1990s. Her love and interest in botanical art stemmed from her work as a signwriter where plant themes were common in decorative design. As well as working in watercolours and oils Yanny also specialises in ‘painting on glass’, a technique she has been developing since her signwriting years. Her paintings are in a number of important collections including the Dr. Shirley Sherwood Collection at Kew Gardens, London and the Office of Public Works, in Wicklow Mountains National Park and the National Botanic Gardens, Dublin.

Recently Yanny has been exploring Nature Print, which is a form of fine art monoprint in which the plant itself is used to print from. The technique was used in the Middle Ages to illustrate Herbals for Medicinal Plant identification.

Yanny teaches watercolour painting and drawing from nature and the purpose of her work is to raise awareness of the wonders of nature and especially the wild plants of Ireland.

She is a member of the Irish Society of Botanical Artists and the Water Colour Society of Ireland.
