About the Course
I run Landscape painting workshops from my studio in Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey and ‘en plein air’ in Snowdonia. They are open to total beginners and more experienced learners.
These workshops are in watercolour or Gouache.
The courses are non-residential and residential also. The price advertised is non-residential.
The workshops run from Friday through to Sunday evening.
On Friday we gather together in the studio and go over the weekend and the facilities in the studio. People who are staying on-site will be familiarised with rooms and facilities. I go over painting techniques that we will use on Saturday morning when we go out painting. (weather permitting)
On Saturday we go out to draw/take photos from the inspirational landscape surrounding Beaumaris (weather dependent) and further into Snowdonia. Then we paint in the studio. I will demonstrate techniques and work one to one with learners, covering wet in wet//brush work/colour mixing.
On Sunday we paint in the studio (unless there is a demand to go out again) and once again I demonstrate techniques and work one to one. I will cover; adding detail into the mix/painting on coloured paper/ texture.
The studio is very comfortable and has a log burner as well as full heating.
If there are any dates that you are interested in doing a workshop that are not listed above, you can contact me using the contact form on this site.
I have taught drawing/painting at many levels from being a University lecturer in Art&Design and foundation courses for those who are starting out. Recently I have run local groups in Wales for adults and WEA. I also have experience in working with disabled people and those with special needs. Part of my training has been in Art Therapy.
My workshops are friendly and I endeavour to make each person feel welcome.
I look forward to meeting you and please feel free to contact me should you have any questions. Diolch.

What's included in the price?
Included in the cost is full tuition for 2 days and hot drinks cake/biscuits. Soup at lunchtime with tasty bakery-baked bread.
Residential learners may stay in accommodation which is 5 minutes walk from the beach and the town of Beaumaris. It's connected to my studio via a garden. Or you can stay in the loft in the spacious studio. The studio has all facilities including its own fully equipped kitchen, wetroom, central heating.
I can also recommend alternative accommodation locally. The cost of staying in the studio or the house for 2 nights and all workshops is £290. Included in the cost is breakfast, lunch, drinks, cake/biscuits throughout the day.
Workshops are for 4-5 people which enables me to give lots of attention to everyone.
If the weather is good and there is demand there is an option to paint outdoors. I have a motorhome which has all the facilities onboard, so you won't get cold and we can eat lunch outdoors in the mountains or by the sea if the weather permits!
More dates and information/photos of the accommodation and facilities can be found on my website. Please see links above.
I prefer learners to bring their own paints and paper but I always have spares that can be used at cost price. Please contact me if you have any other questions. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you!
I have attended a few of Georgina's art courses now and have learnt so much, I was very much an un-confident beginner, and she has really encouraged me to explore and grow as an artist. She has been so generous as a teacher in passing on skills and techniques, and her courses are as fun and enjoyable as they are informative and enlightening. Highly recommended.

Georgina is both an experienced and fun art teacher.
Her recent workshop was an enjoyable and informative experience. She was both encouraging and challenging with innovative ideas, giving advice on practical tips for painting different objects as well as composition and specific effects, such as capturing movement and light and shade.
I learnt a lot and my painting ability has noticeably improved, giving me more confidence to experiment further.

I learnt so much on this course as I was very much a beginner as far as watercolour painting goes. Georgina gave us plenty of watercolour technique instruction but we were also given the invaluable experience of painting outdoors on both days. This gave us the opportunity to practise painting freely, quickly and expressively. The remaining time was spent in the studio finishing our work and working on specific exercises in our sketchbooks. I would highly recommend.

I joined Georgina's class as a beginner a few years ago. She taught me how to paint and at the same time encouraged me to develop my own artistic style.
The sessions are always relaxed usually starting with a short demo on a new technique or an ongoing project .
When working on our own paintings Georgina always has time for everyone to discuss their progress and offers support and guidance .
Since joining Georgina's class I feel I have grown in confidence as a painter and would recommend anyone interested in art to have a go.

I joined Georgina's classes from a recommendation of a friend and I have enjoyed myself immensely. I had very little experience of water colour painting when I began but with Georgina's guidance and encouragement I am able to have a go at anything! She is always able to point out something she likes in the things that I do and will help me on my way when I need it. Now I recommend others to go to Georgina's classes and workshops:-)

Georgina's sessions provide an opportunity to enjoy creative expression, develop skills and explore new techniques in a relaxed, empathetic and supportive environment. Thoroughly recommended.
Sue Clark - - #19014
Georgina's teaching is very helpful both in providing advice on individual paintings and in encouraging us to try different techniques, styles, and media.
A typical session will include short demonstrations or exercises, and we always have time to work on our own paintings.
I value the freedom to work with my own choice of subjects and media. Our mixed-ability group has a wide range of artistic experience and interests, and Georgina tailors her teaching to our individual needs. I started as a beginner about three years ago, and I am confident that my own painting has developed due to her teaching.
