five day course


Monday 26th -  Friday 30th October 2020

Immersive Painting Week

All Mediums Welcome. Please enquire if unsure. All abilities

Over the course of 5 days we can go really deep into all aspects of painting.  Everything you could possibly need to know (or as much as we can fit in!!)

Equally suited to complete novice as it is to very experienced painter. We break everything down to absolute basic and build up from there.


The course as been designed to build as the days go on and is structured in a very specific way to fast track your painting. The last time the course ran students found the 5 continuous days and total immersion to be not only really fun but incredibly useful!!


Very brief outline:

Day1 - Monday 4th
All about tone

The foundation of all painting, a day working in black and white.
We will be going really in depth to fully understand how to see, interpret and paint tone.

Lots of little exercises, demos and painting.

Day2 - Tuesday 5th

This will be a very in depth and quite intense day, but hopefully good fun too!

We will really looking at the colour wheel and how to use, as well as plenty of colour theory and how to use it. (not too heavy going!)
How to see colour and how mix any colour you want.
Limited palettes with at least one limited palette painting.

Day3 - Wednesday 6th

This day should be really fun and very different from the others.
There will be a guided meditation on colour and creativity, painting to music, looking at the mindset of a painter during the painting process, followed by a afternoon painting using a harmonious colours scheme.


How to deal with the ups and downs that come with painting. On both the samller level during a single painting and over a longer period of time as your painting progresses and involves.


We also cover finding your own artistic voice.

Days 4 and 5 - Constructing a painting and basic techniques
How to start and run through a whole painting as well as looking at a whole host of other aspects of painting from composition to how to approach a subject and much more. 

We will go deep into how to analyse a painting when you get stuck and how to keep it moving towards a finish!  All this and a whole lot more

Basically..lots of painting!!!
