Painting Courses and Holidays

I have been teaching artists and running courses for over 15 years. This year I am delighted to offer a range of day workshops, 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.

To give you a "taster" of my courses, enjoy this short video on how to paint a breaking wave.
