Natalie Hauser is a local artist, illustrator, and pattern designer. Natalie's passion lies in exploring ecosystems and biodiversity in nature, drawing inspiration from the world around her. With a wealth of teaching experience spanning primary, secondary, and adult education sectors, Natalie brings a deep understanding of how to nurture creativity in learners of all ages.  

In each session, you'll learn fundamental drawing techniques to bring natural subjects to life on paper. From mastering observation skills to experimenting with various drawing materials, each lesson will deepen your understanding and appreciation of nature's wonders. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced artist, this course offers a supportive environment to develop your skills and unleash your creativity. 

All drawing supplies will be provided. 

Upon completion, you'll walk away with a newfound confidence in your ability to depict nature through your drawing. From here, you can explore further drawing courses, join art communities, or simply continue practicing on your own. 

This is a 1 day workshop, taking place on Monday 15th July, 10:00am - 4:00pm.
