Everyone is welcome whether you are a complete beginner or someone with much experience. I firmly believe that everyone has the ability to draw or paint given the right tuition and encouragement in a positive environment.
There is an absolute maximum of 7 places per week so it is possible to give you all the time and attention you need.
The studio is well equipped and spacious although we usually work out of doors in one of the many areas of the garden or out in the surrounding landscape.
There are also things like air-drying clay, plaster and other sculpting materials to play with!.
Tutored painting sessions are from about 9.00am - 12 noon and 2 - 5pm. But everything is flexible here. The studio is open all day, and Pheona is always around to help you.
Rather than have set courses each week your painting holiday will be organised to suit whoever is in the small group and you choose exactly what you want to learn or do.
When you arrive we have a chat (and perhaps you have brought some photos of your work with you) and then Pheona will suggest an individual but flexible 'course plan' for you.
Of course, you can also just 'take each day as it comes' just enjoying being creative.
You learn and create best when relaxed and enjoying yourself so you'll find that the beautiful environment, the personal attention and the company of like minded people all contribute to you being able to be at your most creative.
'Giggling' is thoroughly recommended for good art!
