Perspective, Sky and Clouds

In January 2024, two new courses are on offer focusing on various aspects of painting and drawing. Sam Clayden will hold an online workshop about painting clouds and skies, targeting techniques like color mixing and aerial perspective. Meanwhile, Eleanor Measham will guide a two-day studio class about perspective drawing and architectural sketching, helping participants boost their alfresco sketching skills and develop perspective sketches.

Portraits, Painting, Sculpture

Next term, renowned Irish sculptor and illustrator Alan Clarke and British portrait painter James Bland will be leading workshops. Clarke, the only ever Irish member of the Society of Portrait Sculptors, will guide a life-sized portrait in clay class from March 4th-6th, 2024. Bland, member of the prestigious societies CBPP and NEAC, will conduct a portrait painting course on January 29th/30th, 2024. The classes will be held at Mottisfont Village Hall, Mottisfont, Romsey SO51 0LH

Mottisfont, Landscape and Abstraction

Michael Weller, a seasoned tutor, will guide a two-day oil painting course at Mottisfont Abbey, Hampshire, focusing on landscapes and abstraction. The setting, a neo-classical home surrounded by gardens, woodlands, and farmland, provides an enticing backdrop. The workshop takes place on the 27th and 28th of November, 2023, costing £215, with the first day being a fieldwork day and the second painting from studio. Experience in drawing is beneficial, but all levels are welcomed.
