Art Holidays

We offer a vibrant programme of residential art courses for adults, enabling you to develop existing skills as well as try new activities. We work closely with a team of talented locally based artist/maker tutors who provide expertly-run classes in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. 
 
Our residential courses cater for a range of skill levels, ranging from first-time participants to people with existing skill levels (including other professional artists and makers looking to develop their techniques). 
 
Our emphasis is on encouraging creativity and enjoyment whilst passing on key skills. 
 
During each course with individual artists and tutors there will be a strong emphasis on taking the time to, just be, in the local landscape. 
 
Through a series of guided creative encounters with the landscape together with time spent in the studio students will encourage to develop a personal representation based on both intuition and observation.
 
Daily walks will allow you to discover this remote and beautiful area and guide you through different ways of interpreting the experience of landscape through sketching and recording and innovating with materials. Each day will progress and build on what has been learnt before, thus introducing students to ways of seeing and experiencing the landscape that may be new to them. 
 
There will be opportunities, daily, for students to work in the studio in order to create a more considered final piece that will include elements and observations from the previous days.
 
During your stay you will be in a private en-suite bedroom located within the space. You will be welcomed on arrival with a two course home cooked evening meal. Each afternoon you will have a choice of cake and biscuits, coffee and tea. Following on for this the course is based on self catering where you will have full use of the kitchen facilities within the accommodation.
 
Of course, non painter partners, are welcome to join you during your experience with us. We would be happy for them to come join us for tea and cake on arrival
