Creative Mindfulness, an Introduction

This introductory workshop is for anyone interested in learning more about mindfulness and those who are finding that stress, anxiety, or the inner critic is affecting their ability to be creative. You don’t to need know anything about drawing/painting, we are focusing on the process and not an end product. 

Portrait Painting with James Bland NEAC

This is a busy two day course with the talented James Bland. There will be a variety of models over the time you are with us.

To paint a portrait is to consider the human condition and to reflect upon our own existence, it is deeply personal and as varied and exciting as the people we paint and the painters that paint them

Landscape Painting

Join Kate Measham and discover how to find your way into a landscape painting – even in January.

This will be an exciting couple of days exploring different possibilities with quick sketches, more quick sketches, colour sketches, followed by more considered work.

Kate’s approach to painting is to remove the fear factor, to encourage experimenting with new ideas, look to other sources for inspiration, stealing if necessary. Take risks in this safe environment – surprise yourself.
