Oil painting: A great opportunity to learn some oil painting techniques working from simple still life subject matter. It will cover a variety of fundamentals, such as equipment, surface preparation, colour mixing and painting techniques, allowing beginners to gain confidence and the more experienced to refresh their approaches. Special measures will be in place to keep everyone safe.
Catherine MacDiarmid is a local artist who exhibits nationally, including work in the BP Portrait award for young artists at the National Portrait Gallery in 2001/2. She is an elected member of the Lakes Artists Society and appeared in Sky Portrait Artists of the Year 2014, 2018 and 2019. Last year she had a major retrospective of her work at the Brewery Arts Centre. As well as completing private portrait commissions her work is collected internationally.

She is an excellent teacher and inspired many students and artist.
The workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a converted Cumbrian barn on our traditional Lakeland Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay in one of our luxury camping pods on the farm.
All our tutors are carefully selected professionals and experts with extensive teaching experience. Whilst this is a new venture, George, who has set up Cowshed Creative, has many years of experience programming and running creative courses at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and for Cumbria Adult Education.
