Summer Workshops have now finished - please contact me if you are interested in going on the mailing list to receive details of future en plein air oil painting workshops.

The following related to our Summer 2017 workshops (and remains here to provide background information):

At these workshops there will be two artists/teachers: Fran Russell - experienced oil painting en plein air landscape artist and tutor in oils and acrylics who has exhibited in London, Kent, East Sussex and Nottingham - and - Joanne Weaver BA, experienced sculptor, painter and tutor in oils, pastel and acrylics who has exhibited in London, Kent and Oxford. Both artists had work selected for The Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition - the Society's 300th Exhibition - at the Mall Galleries, London in March 2017.

Fran and Joanne will teach in partnership allowing students to choose their subject matter. Depending on the workshop venue this could be trees, big skies, riverside views, boats, lakes and reflections, ponds, gardens, orchards or pastoral scenes. Fran and Joanne have different skills to share. This combined way of teaching will allow you the opportunity to learn so much more as the two tutors complement each other's styles and ways of working.

The workshops are designed for beginners - those who are new to painting in oils or acrylics &/or those who are new to painting en plein air. You will learn about; setting up outdoors, finding your subject, composition, atmospheric perspective, colour mixing and application of your chosen medium. There will be a maximum 10 students per workshop with 2 tutors to ensure plenty of individual tuition.

Cost: £50 per person per day *.

We have chosen venues that have a café (not applicable at Weavers Studio) & toilets nearby (within a 10-minute walk).

* Lunch and beverages are not included in the workshop price.

Time: 9:30am (for induction) until 5pm.
