The GreenHouse

The GreenHouse

The GreenHouse is a space dedicated to learning and practicing botanical art.  The studio is light-filled, warm and rich with inspiration.  There is an extensive library of books covering all areas of botanical art and the studio is fully equipped.  

Students of CSBA learn traditional drawing and painting techniques through understanding and practice, applying them to botanical subjects.  Basic botany and the close observation of plants are fundamental to creating a botanical painting that is scientifically accurate and aesthetically pleasing.

Face to face learning in small groups is our speciality at the GreenHouse.  The classroom environment, with the benefit of group discussions and personal feedback, remains the most effective way for botanical artists to learn and grow with confidence.  

Ham is located in the lush suburbs of Richmond, within walking distance of the River Thames, Richmond Park and the 72 hectare local nature reserve of Ham Lands.  The studio can be reached by bus or a river-walk from either Richmond (Overground, Underground and National Rail) or Kingston Upon Thames (National Rail).  There is also free parking in the vicinity.
