Summer Course - Introduction to Landscape

08 May 2018

Try something new this summer!  

An 8 week course on Tuesday afternoons, 2-4pm, 8 May - 26 June

Tutor: Alexandra Woods

Course Fee:  £100

Explore the pleasure of observing and recording your surroundings in the beautiful setting of Pitville Park, Cheltenham. The majority of the sessions will be held outside at the park; however, if the British weather brings rain, we shall retreat to the Cheltenham Art Club studio and continue drawing and painting there.

Some sessions will also be held in the Art Studio when we are developing our studies with oil and acrylic paints. Ideal for both beginners and more experienced artists wishing to refresh and develop their skills.
