About the Course

We have been teaching on our art courses for 15 years, in weekly art lessons. weekend breaks in Rye and new for this year painting hoildays in Greece (please take a look at our other courses).
We believe everyone can paint, you just need to be shown how.
Whether you are on your own, a couple or in a group, you will have fun learning to paint and meeting new friends on this fantastic weekend 2 day course in sunny Broadstairs Kent!
​The art course is for beginners or intermediates mainly in watercolour painting (other mediums welcomed). So if you want to discover or rediscover a passion in painting this course is for you.
You will be shown from scratch how to stretch paper, apply paint, mix colour and all watercolour techniques to get you started. For improvers we will help you to expand your knowledge and introduce you to new ideas, tips and techniques.
All the art materials you need will be provided for the weekend (other mediums bring your own).
There will be various step by step demonstrations and individual tuition throughout the course. You should complete at least 4 finished paintings.
We have laid out the itinerary for indoors, but if the weather is good we may go outside and paint in the lovely area of Broadstairs for some of the time. We have plenty of beaches and scenic views to inspire you.
We promise you will turn out paintings from the first morning’s lesson and we know you will be hooked from there on in, even if you have never painted before.
We run a friendly and very relaxed class, so don’t be shy, come and join us for a wonderful packed weekend full of fun.
