What you will do 

In this workshop you will learn how your perception of a plant is guided by your knowledge. Annemarie will guide you with an introduction into the biology of plants and how the unique details of each plant comes into existence.  You will then together explore our beautiful gardens and location surroundings, taking pictures of various plants.  The drawing phase starts with picking a photo and learning how to find and draw the unique details of the chosen plant. This workshop is especially interesting for those who love plants and wish to know more about them, but also (aspiring) artists that wish to deepen their knowledge of plant drawing.

Annemarie Verschoor 

Annemarie Verschoor is an artist trained as a biologist. The forms of nature - to put it gracefully - have always occupied her. How do those shapes come about? What are they for? How strange is it that our eyes are so pleased with those shapes? In short, enough to keep looking at them endlessly and drawing them. By depicting them something more happens. They are simplified or crammed into a frame. That often makes them even more beautiful.
