The John Busby Seabird Drawing Course bursaries 2020


The SWLA offers 3 bursaries for places on The John Busby Seabird Drawing Course 2020. The next week long course is to be held from 13th  – 20th June 2020 at seabird colonies around Dunbar and the Firth of Forth. Course leaders Darren Woodhead & Kittie Jones, Nik Pollard and Pascale Rentsch will be on hand to offer advice and guidance on drawing and painting in the field.  This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside (usually around 20) established and enthusiastic artists and get an insight into the diverse approaches that those artists have to working in the field.

NB. John Busby set up the seabird drawing course some 30 years ago and although many SWLA  members have participated, it is an independent course and open to all.   If you would like to apply to go on the course independently please view this page.

What the bursary provides 
The current bursary is £550 per person, divided as follows;
Course fee (£395). The course fee will be paid directly by SWLA.
The remaining £155 will be paid shortly before the course and the applicant can either use this for boat trips (£30/trip, ranging from none to 3 or 4) and/or towards accommodation.
