Painting Courses and Holidays

I have been teaching artists and running courses for over 20 years. This year I am delighted to offer a range of structured weekly classes, short breaks and painting holidays. Learning is within small groups with plenty of demonstrations, structured lessons, and one to one support when you need it. I aim to encourage a friendly atmosphere where there are no "silly questions". Everyone has time to develop their own style whilst learning those key skills which underpin your work and will help you become a better, more confident painter. Courses are for adults only but suitable for all abilities unless stated otherwise.
