THE SCHOOL

Carolyn Jenkins 2The School

The Chelsea School of Botanical Art offers courses based on sound educational principles taught by accomplished and respected artists, academics and botanists.

The school, under the leadership of Helen Allen BA, (Hons) PGCert Ed, Dip EGS, FLS, will soon be entering its sixth year offering a range of Short Courses and Master Classes, as well as the popular and unique Diploma Course in Botanical Painting and Illustration

The art and scientific practice of depicting plants has evolved over centuries and continues to develop worldwide. Botanical art and illustration are crucial conservation tools in the description of endangered species, of collections of rare and native plants, and of plants in particular botanic and historic gardens.

Classes take place at the delightful and prestigious Chelsea Physic Garden.
