Ewan visited Sidmouth Arboretum in May and attended Tree Day where he discussed and demonstrated tree drawing between lectures.
During the visit, Ewan was invited to be Artist to the Sidmouth Arboretum and to provide a series of drawings of the Arboretum’s notable trees. It is hoped that these drawings would support the Arboretum in its various projects which range from conservation to education. He has so far made a rough survey of the Arboretum and drawn 13 trees.
Sidmouth is the only town anywhere to have a civic arboretum. It covers all the land under the jurisdiction of the Town Council and includes a wide variety of trees with several rare and unusual species. Find out more at www.sidmoutharboretum.org.uk.
