We travel to different locations every day. We include demonstrations, one-to-one tuition, critique sessions and an informal end-of-week exhibition.

Alternatively, you may prefer to operate independently of our team, just enjoying the social aspects of the holiday.

Our team are professional painters. They are friendly, patient and encouraging in helping you develop, whatever your experience.

Description

About the course

We are bringing you all to the Lakes, a favourite painting location of mine; painting from locations many people do not know about, years of experience means we know where the best locations are.

You will be staying in very comfortable accommodation in central Keswick, close to all other amenities.

We will be taking you to locations after breakfast, and lunch will be provided on location so we can carry on painting.

I am hoping to get you all painting at least two paintings each day so if you are doing five days you could go home with ten new paintings which you could sell and more than pay for your course!

We will provide all the materials needed, the cost of materials is in addition to the course fee.

There are some top tips about your set up which I have learnt from all my years of practice and once you are booked on these will be shared, so your journey starts even before you get here.

A full list of everything you need to bring will be provided.

After initial introductions we will head out on location where I will give a demonstration but you are of course welcome to start yourself.

I will complete a small canvas landscape in about 30 minutes and then help you all get set up.

Everyone gets my utmost attention and help. I want to free you all up and impart as much of my knowledge as I can over the time spent together.

I have developed this way of working over many years of hard work but have every faith you will walk away with some of your own paintings you will be very proud of.

There will also be in depth discussions and fun discussions over dinner and drinks later.

Whilst I am using Oils and want to encourage you all to do the same, something we also can offer is acrylics and mixed media and again I can demonstrate that for you, it’s a different approach to oil so if you really fancied it you could even do a bit of both, one day Oils the next Acrylic and mixed media and see what works for you.

At the end of each day we will go back to our studio and have a short group critique session, then back for clean-up and dinner and drinks.

At the end of your course, be it a one day or two and a half days or the full five-day programme I will give each of you an individual one to one critique session and hope to galvanise what is good with your painting style and develop a way forward to enhance your artistic skills further.

We want this to be one the best learning and growing experiences you have ever had, and perhaps come back and paint another season with us.

I have taught a few Art groups recently and feedback tells me it is one of their best experiences.

Reviews:

"Amazing experience. Had the best time, made some amazing friends and have learnt so much. Loved the course and enjoyed everything about it overall."

"It has been amazing. The people, the course, the scenery, everything came together. Really enjoyed it."
