Our tutors are practising artists themselves, sharing their experience and expertise through one to one guidance and feedback. Combined with the opportunity to discuss your art with other students in our friendly studio, the course offers a perfect environment to achieve your full artistic potential.
This is a wonderful course for beginners or those who have been out of their art practice for a while and want to take a refresher. There is an emphasis on developing drawing skills and you will also have the opportunity to experiment with pastels, watercolour and acrylic painting. We will be working from still life objects and occasionally from photographs.
This course is suitable for all levels as small groups allow one-to-one guidance tailored to experience.
