The SWLA offers three bursaries for places on The John Busby Seabird Drawing Course 2019. The next week-long course is to be held in June 2019 at seabird colonies around Dunbar and the Firth of Forth.

Course leaders Darren Woodhead SWLA, Greg Poole SWLA & Kittie Jones SWLA along with a guest tutor will be on hand to offer advice and guidance on drawing and painting in the field. This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside around 20 established and enthusiastic artists and get an insight into the diverse approaches that those artists have to working in the field.

What the bursary provides: 

The current bursary is £550 per person, divided as follows;

Course fee (£375). The course fee will be paid directly by SWLA.

The remaining £175 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.

A work produced on the course by the bursary winner will be exhibited in the SWLA Annual Exhibition the following year.
