Our next Painting Abstract Florals course will be starting in January 2024 and is suitable for complete beginners as well as more experienced artists. In this course, students will be given a step by step introduction to abstract floral painting and will gain confidence and experience through exploring a selection of techniques, tools, materials and processes. 

The course is led by local artist and MA Fine Art graduate, Eve Dawson. Eve’s work is collected by private individuals in the UK and internationally. Working with acrylics, graphite and oil pastels, Eve’s work is inspired by nature and is alive with vibrant colours, capturing the beauty and allure of the natural world. Eve is an experienced tutor and has inspired many adults learners, giving them the confidence to pursue their own interest in art. 

Abstract Florals runs on a Tuesday afternoon 3-5pm for 10 weeks (start date 9th January). Other courses led by Eve include Portraiture, The Art of Drawing and Guided Painting.
