I run Landscape painting workshops from my spacious studio in Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey and ‘en plein air’ in Snowdonia or on Anglesey. These workshops are open to total beginners and more experienced learners. The workshops are in watercolour or Gouache and are non-residential. If you require accommodation please contact me and I can help you find somewhere to stay nearby. The workshops run from Friday through to Sunday evening. On Friday we gather together in the studio and I go over the weekend and the facilities in the studio and 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 brushwork, colour mixing and many other ways of using paint. 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 and more. 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 is not listed above, you can contact me using the 'message the tutor' button. I have taught drawing/painting at many levels from being a University lecturer in Art&Design, and also 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. I can recommend accommodation locally. 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 for longer. 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 taught painting and design for nearly 40 years. I have my own practice and sell my work in various galleries and shows. My experience is that anyone can paint and draw if they are shown in a way they understand and practical information only makes sense if it's practised! I am enthusiastic and empathetic, I understand how some learners just cannot get past ' I can't paint' - let me prove you wrong! My teaching experience ranges from local art groups to University level and special needs
