online courses and small group workshops

Using nature as a starting point for much of my own work, I love to deliver a rewarding experience for others who wish to explore nature as a starting point for a broad variety of projects.

Drawing On Nature will give you the tools, and help you find the inspiration, to make artistic responses based on your time in nature.

Victoria Burton-Davey BA(hons) CertEd


I have over twenty years' experience in providing art workshops to schools, colleges, artists, to businesses for staff development, and the general public for fun. I have worked in partnership with large organisations as well as individuals, and have enjoyed working with students of all ages and abilities.

All online courses are packaged into easy access modules, with lots of resources to print off and full preparatory notes. Any materials will be listed in advance.

All workshops and tutorials will be undertaken in line with the latest Covid 19 guidance. The #ArtGarden hosts a lovely outdoor workspace.

Full Terms and Conditions here.


It was wonderful to work with a professional artist who is also used to teaching all abilities and ages. Victoria put us all at our ease, and her personal approach meant we all felt we had made great strides in our work.

I felt like my professional practice was stuck in a rut but with Victoria's shared expertise and experience, I was encouraged to explore new perspectives and materials.
