Graeme Swanson

Abstract painter Graeme joined us in 2015 as well, and has rapidly become the 'go-to' tutor for all our Abstract Painting courses and workshops.

A gentle and encouraging tutor, Graeme is a hugely experienced artist and tutor, and professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists since 2008. He has exhibited extensively in Scotland and beyond. His painting aims to explore the rural and urban landscape, focusing on the essence of surface and texture - the ‘mark making’ impact of human actions, weather, time and environment, and Graeme carries this over into his tutoring, where his students are given great freedom to play with texture, surface and technique.

Graeme also teaches the ever-popular Beginners Drawing.
