Make some time for yourself and rediscover the inner artist in you in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. Our Art Workshops are aimed to assist people in fulfilling their creative ambitions and we tailor our teaching to your ability. Demonstrating skills and techniques is at the forefront of what we do so that you can feel confident in exploring new ways of working in perhaps a medium which is new to you. With over 10 years of teaching experience artist and art teacher Adele will support and guide you in a kind and encouraging manner.
Learn to paint like the old masters such as Claude Monet, En plein air. We have specific areas set up, e.g. alongside the beautiful Shropshire Union Canal to keep you dry whilst you paint outside. Feel rested and recuperate by booking one of our cosy glamping pods either the night before or after your Art Workshop and feel at one with nature. Or bring your own campervan/caravan/tent as we have our own caravan park. We have a variety of courses on offer ranging from day courses in printmaking or painting to 3 days Art holiday. Our courses includes all materials but if you have a specific set of brushes that you perhaps like to use then bring them along. In addition, please remember to bring waterproof warm clothing and appropriate boots to wear. There are 6-8 places on each course, restricted to a small number to allow for plenty of one to one time with your tutor.
