Soft Pastels with Dawn Oliver

Artist and Tutor Dawn Oliver has already led four Art courses at Ammerdown and received superb feedback each time. “Openness, kindness, flexibility, the knowledge and experience of the subject, a good sense of humour”.(Previous Participant)

This is due in no small part to her fun approach to teaching, based on her firm conviction that people are much more receptive to learning in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Dawn’s course is suitable for anyone with some (if only a little) experience in working with soft pastels. It will cover a range of subjects such as flowers, buildings, landscape and still life using different techniques in this lovely medium. Dawn will give daily demonstrations and individual tuition, with a minimum of six hours a day dedicated to creating pictures.

Here is what Dawn writes about herself. "I come from a family of artists and was brought up with a paintbrush in my hand. I am a qualified tutor and have been teaching art on all levels since 1994, both in adult education and on painting holidays in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and of course here in England. I cannot think of a greater pleasure than sharing my knowledge and joy for art with other people”.
