Insect Metamorphosis Watercolour Painting Workshop with Cath Hodsman
Sat 7 August , 10:30 am - 4:00 pm £80 – £90
An Artistic and Scientific Appreciation of Metamorphosis – the Beautiful and Mysterious Lifecycle of Butterflies and Moths”
A Cath Hodsman watercolour painting workshop suitable for all levels.
Metamorphosis is a truly unique and magical natural phenomenon. So little is known about how it happens and yet, the result of each stage is a wonder to behold… This watercolour painting workshop will use art to pay homage to this incredible natural transformation.
Cath and course participants will study how this mysterious process manifests itself, in butterflies and moths. Each fascinating stage of metamorphosis will be studied in all its beauty and wonder. Each student will have access to their own high-powered microscopes, as well as her large selection of ethically sourced insect specimens and macro photos, to study the hidden beauty of this incredible process.
Participants will then use microscopes, specimens and macro photographs to produce a detailed and unique watercolour painting that pays homage to this amazing process. You don’t have to be an expert in either watercolour painting or entomology; you just need to be fascinated by both.
