David regularly teaches at the following venues. He also offers private tuition (one to two students); please contact him at
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
Explore the techniques, and expressive joys of landscape watercolour painting. This ten-week course will use artist demonstration and individual guidance to help each student to a more confident handling of this fascinating medium. Lessons will cover techniques in the studio, but where conditions are suitable the students will have the chance to work outside in the Garden.
You can find details in the Education Brochure page 23.
