Watercolour Painting and Drawing

Artist and tutor Dawn Oliver has led two ‘Painting and Drawing Holidays at Ammerdown’ and received superb feedback each time. 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.

Dawn’s course is suitable for everyone with some (if only a little) experience in watercolour painting. It covers a range of subjects (e.g. buildings, flowers, landscape) as well as a variety of techniques, with a minimum of six hours dedicated to painting or drawing on a daily basis. There are daily demonstrations by Dawn as well as tailored individual tuition.

Here is what Dawn 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 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.

Led by: Dawn Oliver

Please arrive 12 noon on Monday. The course ends with lunch on Friday.
