The Courtyard Art Studio Summer Courses

After a month or so of exhibitions, we are returning to our programme of courses and we are delighted to be hosting a wide variety of media, skills and genres over the next couple of months.

During July, we have several one day courses, perfect for those of you looking to dip your toe into a new medium. We start with An Introduction to Drawing, followed by an Introduction to Modern Calligraphy and a Beginners Digital Photography workshop. Popular tutors, Lisa Ann Watkins, Caroline Nixon, Peter Keegan and Laura Boswell all return to lead two day workshops in their respective fields and we finish the month of July hosting two, new, portraiture tutors; Rob Wareing will lead Pastel Portraits and Mike Skidmore, A 3 day Traditional Portraiture in Oils Workshop.

During August, we welcome our Junior Artists back to the Studio, and after the success of The Wild Beasts exhibition, Tom Shepherd will be leading two different courses with us. Caroline Nixon has a new course in the middle of the month; Ecoprint onto Paper - a perfect introduction to the techniques of ecoprinting. And if you are unable to join us for any of our day courses, then please feel free to pop along to our evening classes in Portraiture and Life Drawing, both of which will be taking place during the summer.

Here’s to a creative summer for all!
