NEW art courses for all ages and abilities are being held at Dorset Wildlife Trust's Kingcombe Education Centre.

Local artists are adding to an extensive list of wildlife painting courses including painting autumnal fruits, berries and seedheads with Sarah Morrish and painting summer flowers and fruits with Jenny Major.

Tutor Christina Hart-Davies is running a three day residential course on painting summer plants in watercolour from June 20 to 22.

“These new courses are perfect for Kingcombe – the tranquil and inspiring setting of wild flower meadows couldn’t be better for people to learn in,” said Debbie Watkins, living landscapes manager for West Dorset.

Courses include accommodation and all meals so students can focus entirely on developing their skills.
