Watercoulour Drawing and Painting

Led by: Dawn Oliver

We are delighted that artist Dawn Oliver has agreed to lead one of her famous painting holidays at Ammerdown. Dawn has been running these for years, in the UK and abroad, and has already built quite a following. 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 when they are enjoying themselves in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

The course Dawn has in mind for Ammerdown will be suitable for people with some (if only a little) experience in watercolour painting. The group will be painting for at least 6 hours a day and Dawn will give at least two demonstrations a day alongside individual tuition. She aims to cover a range of subjects (e.g. buildings, flowers, landscape) as well as a variety of techniques.

Here is what she writes about her background and qualifications:  “I come from a family of artists and was brought up with a paint brush in my hand! I regularly exhibit and sell work in this country and in the USA , Canada and France (selected exhibitions include Royal Society of Watercolour Painters, Royal Society of Miniature Painters and the Hilliard Society). I can be found in the Who's Who of Art. I am also a qualified tutor and have been teaching art at all levels since 1994.”

N.B. A list of material to bring will be send to everyone booking on the course.
