The RBGE Certificate in Botanical Illustration (CBI) is a great way to learn the fundamental techniques of paint and pencil. Using plants as our core subject this course is an ideal starting certificate if you want to become a botanical illustrator. The techniques you learn are valuable across all areas of illustration and seldom taught in art colleges or university art departments, so it is well suited to any developing artist.

This course consists of ten units with assessment built into the programme. The focus is on the fundamental skills, and is taught by experienced and enthusiastic tutors.

The RBGE Certificate in Botanical Illustration is a formally assessed course and therefore requires students to successfully pass all units and assignments in order to achieve the award.  Students are required to build up a course portfolio containing notes, visuals and exercises and to upload this to PropaGate Learning (RBGE's online learningenvironment) throughout. This body of work will show progression and help develop skills leading to a final painted composition. Both the portfolio and the final piece will be assessed and the marks combined to provide the final grade. There is also an element of continuing self-assessment and evaluation within the programme.
