Melbourne teen artists are invited to the National Gallery of Victoria for a FREE studio class on fine drawing and watercolour with a botanical theme. This exciting workshop will be run by Shelley Steer, a successful illustrator and textile designer based in Melbourne.
Shelley's textile designs have been featured with a number of fashion labels including Anthropologie, Abercrombie & Fitch, Metaleap Creative and Thyren. Her fine drawings of botanicals are highly creative and a real feast for the eyes. Some of her designs can be viewed here.
