 We have a programme of several one and two day workshops throughout the year. These usually are based on a theme and can involve trips to a location or the study of an original art work close up.


  Particularly popular are our Dorset Coast Workshops, this is a two day course. We start painting on location at one of the many sites along Dorset's Jurassic Coast (a world heritage site) and follow up back in the studio where we complete our paintings.

 Other courses have focussed on different locations as well as themes based on artists or different methods.


  A calendar of future courses will be anounced in the new year and will be posted below.

  You may well find yourself,

at your easel; in the beautiful woods near Thomas Hardy's birthplace, surrounded by autumn colour, with one of our thermos cups of hot coffee or chocolate in hand.








And as you leisurely paint, you may think (as many of us do) ... life doesn't get much better than this!
