Short Courses & Workshops

A great way for people who are unable to commit to full or part-time study to learn atelier techniques and greatly boost their skills. Workshops run several times per year, whilst short course dates can be chosen to suit you.

What Will You Achieve

It may be unlikely that you will finish your workshop drawing or painting in such a small space of time but what you will achieve is a concentrated and thorough knowledge of a process that you can then choose to incorporate into your own art works and at your own pace. A workshop for a week will improve your drawing and painting for life. Many participants claim to have learned more from a week long workshop than they did in 3 years of art college.

Instructors

Group sizes are kept small, so each participant gets lots of one-on-one attention. We teach year round so, unlike many artists who offer summer/holiday workshops, our instructors are professional teachers as well as successful award-winning artists. Whether you are an experienced artist or have never painted before, our instructors will tailor to your skill level.

Occasionally we invite prestigious guest artists and instructors to run workshops.
