Spring has sprung – time to pick up a paintbrush and try something new…

March has arrived, bringing with it the first art group of the year.  The New Pastel School took up residence for four days, and brought with them some beautiful spring weather.

While several of our 2016 courses are already full, we do still have plenty of availability on others, so have a browse and see if there’s an art break this year that might tickle your fancy: https://www.shorlandoldfarm.co.uk/art-holidays-courses/art-holidays-courses-2016/.  Details of how to book can be found on that page.

Last minute places are still available on Bill Lupton’s Drama in Watercolour Landscapes, 21 – 24 April.  Do get in Bill Lupton 2touch if you’d like to join us on those dates.  Bill’s a Nottingham-based artist with a fun and informal presentation style that creates a relaxed environment for learning and having a go.  The course will include

  • dramatic Skies – including the use of wet-into-wet to create wonderful skies
  • how to make the best use of photographs to create more interesting images
  • trees, water and buildings in a painting
