David teaches Plein Air Landscape. The course involves drawing or painting outdoors around three various locations in the Mosman area. The locations are varied each term.

David has taught a wide range of students both young and old, male and female, complete beginners to advanced students. David says that the beginners are often understandably quite nervous at their first class but astounded at times by their rapid progress during the course. This motivation is also inspired by having some of the regular students working around them. "This course is a great opportunity for students who not only love drawing or painting but to get up close to nature and discover locations they may not have visited before."
