Robert Dutton – (Expressive Art)

  • Admired expressive award-winning artist and highly-praised tutor from West Yorkshire
  • His creative energy is catching for his students – we don’t know how he does it!
  • Robert taps the wonderful surroundings of where he delivers to get those creative juices flowing.
  • Enjoy both demos and genuine personal encouragement on all aspects of expressive painting and drawing

In depth details about every course Robert does at Higham, can be found on his own excellent website: www.rdcreative.co.uk  – Robert is very active as a Tutor all over the place and it is nice when students he has taught elsewhere discover little ol’ Higham.

Robert pops up to Higham regularly because people rave about his infectious enthusiasm and energy. Lots of this comes from what the landscape and views can offer artists when they are interpreted in the right way – Robert uses location as a start, often with photographs, and is strong on demos to show you what can be achieved. The results from Students can often be breathtaking.
