North Wales: 27th July - 1st August 2019

**One Place Has Just Become Available due to Cancellation**
Drawing is hard work so afternoon tea and cake is always welcome and much needed and you know it's always going to be tasty! How about combining 5 days of drawing with a holiday in stunning north Wales? Trigonos is on the edge of Snowdonia (you can see Snowdon from the garden) and this is the perfect setting to learn to draw and as a bonus, we are spoiled with amazing vegetarian food!

JULY 27th to AUGUST 1ST Residential in North Wales (non residential options available. Non-drawing partners welcome subject to availability. One place has just become available due to cancellation

"Thank you for making this week’s course such a great experience. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. … your course helped me reset my brain to be patient, enjoy the process and be content on learning. I doubt I would have got as far as I did trying to learn on my own." RM



Dr. Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain® 5-day intensive course is a proven technique for teaching drawing - particularly to those people who swear they could never be taught to draw! This course is taught in the UK by Anna Black, certified and licensed by Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain® Inc.

Anna teaches in the UK in central London (Little Venice), non-residential, and North Wales, near Bangor, (residential).
  • The course lasts for 5 days (9.30am-5.30pm) and includes 35 hours of teaching and The Drawing Portfolio (RRP over £55 exc dvd).

  • The cost for the course and all materials is £525. There is an additional charge for board and accommodation on the residential courses and you can purchase the dvd separately. Save £50 off the course fee by booking before the early bird expires. See individual course dates.

Here is a video of work from the last 2 days of the course. Although the drawings you see here are all portraits, students are learning the skill of drawing - a global skill that can be applied to drawing any subject matter. A sneak peek inside the last couple of days of the workshop


The contents of the Drawing Portfolio were designed by Dr Betty Edwards and Brian Bomeisler. It includes all the materials you will need for the course, including drawing tools unique to Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain®. These unique tools were developed by Brian Bomeisler based on those used by the Old Masters. The Portfolio and its contents are yours to take home and keep.
