This new watercolour painting day, suitable for all levels, offers participants the chance to study
different types of British bees in both an artistic and scientific way. Each student will have the use of a microscope to study the enjoyable and absorbing anatomical beauty of bees. Using her vast range of bee specimens, entomological artist Cath Hodsman, will discuss how bees pollinate, how they fly, how they produce food for their young and generally, pay homage to these fascinating and iconic insects. Participants will then use either a microscope and specimen or macro photographic material to produce a detailed and unique piece of art to take home.
