Summer Art School 

One place remaining

Join local artist Hazel Money and like minded company in this tranquil location and enjoy a painting holiday with a difference.  Suitable for all abilities including completebeginners, we will be inspired by contemporary and historical artists, try out different mediums and have a go at different subjects, choosing to paint inside or out of doors, during the week.  Hazel will give a series of demonstrations and offer a number of structured workshops for you to join, or alternatively you may choose put your feet up or work on your own existing project. 

Do you enjoy painting but find you are stuck in a rut?  Need a helping hand to give you a push?  Or do you feel you'd like to try something different?  Maybe you just want to spend time developing your own work in the company of others.  This relaxing art break will give you the time to let your creative side flourish.

Some general materials are supplied, with participants bringing extra painting materials they wish to use during the week.  Painting will take place in the studio as well as the grounds of the Nightingale Centre and with optional trips to the local area, using shared cars at the individuals own risk.

Arrive from 4 pm on Monday 15th July, departing at 2 pm on Friday the 19th of July 2024. 

The programme details along with the suggested list of materials will be forwarded 4 weeks prior to the workshop start date.
