Draw & plant trees

in the Amber Forest

Add your tree to our forest!

The Amber Tree project is a never-ending ever-growing drawing of a global forest, made up of tree drawings & photos from all over the world. For every tree drawing added to the forest, we plant a parallel real tree. Currently we are planting the parallel trees in Madagascar. Soon we will be planting trees in conservation land we are acquiring on Dartmoor.  So you will be able to visit your own tree - AND draw the forest. We ask for a donation of your choice to add your tree drawing to the forest. Don't let this put you off, as a donation of zero is acceptable! - we can offset this. We want as many trees in the forest as possible. 

You are also invited to attend Amber Tree workshops, where we continue to draw the Amber Mother Tree, at the heart of the forest.

About Brew Draw

The Brew International Drawing School was created by Dr Angela Brew and Clare Brew in 2013, to provide drawing courses and resources.


Angela Brew runs workshops, retreats and events, exploring a wide range of drawing and related cognitive and perceptual processes, including observational drawing, visual literacy, drawing to solve problems, thinking through drawing, drawing to learn and professional development for educators.

Brew's doctoral research 'The Seeing Hand' explored the orchestration of eye and hand for observational drawing. She developed a new system for teaching observational drawing, focusing on eye and hand coordination and connection, and the fine tuning of perception. Her Drawing Growth workshops and retreats introduce this intuitive technique, opening doors to the joys and meditative qualities of observational drawing.
