Betty Edwards' five-day Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain® workshop is now available in the UK. The five-day pencil drawing course is taught by Anna Black, under license from Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Inc.

I am delighted to be offering a residential course option at an inspiring location on the west coast of Scotland (approx 70 minutes from Glasgow International Airport). If you live locally it is possible to attend on a non-residential basis.

If you and a group of family or friends (max 4) would like to have your own exclusive workshop at Rowan House, please get in touch to discuss. 

I don't have any London courses scheduled for the foreseeable future.
