About the Course

A fantastic opportunity to draw and paint from some beautiful public gardens and develop your artwork back at the studio. The winter garden holds glorious colour and structural interest in its dormancy. This open-level course is for anyone interested in developing personal expression and focuses on visual design both in art and the garden, whether formal or informal. Enjoy exploring mixed media techniques to evoke winter scenes and experience a journey through your image making.

We garden as far as our eyes can see and our boundaries dictate. Beyond the domestic we ourselves are custodians of wilderness. The line between the manicured and the untamed can be clear but often it is blurred by our management of landscape historically. ‘Where does the garden end?’ sets the tone for our cultivated visual exploration of the garden in its striking winter season.

Course tutor: Jevan Watkins Jones
Jevan's teaching approach is simultaneously gentle and rigorous. He is an alumnus of the Royal Drawing School where he received First Prize for his drawings from city farms. His drawing practice ranges from sensitive and energetic studies of plants and people in the landscape to working on long term collaborative drawing projects with communities such as Facing-Recovering with injured soldiers. Jevan has a very active enjoyment of gardens, plants and the natural world. This course offers an opportunity to benefit from his two great passions.
