Brand New Art Courses

Do you like the idea of getting to grips with painting and drawing and spending a day in the stunning locations of Arley Arboretum? This course is perfect for you.

Taking inspiration from the grounds of Arley Arboretum participants will be guided through a series of creative exercises gathering visual ‘material’ and learning to record what is seen. The initial drawing techniques will combine studies using line and tone experimenting with different materials from pencil, pen, chalk and charcoal. 

Cost per participant is £99 per person.

Sessions will last for 6 hours and will include a 30-45-minute lunch and 2 x 15-minute comfort breaks.

 

Dates Available:

Saturday 17th June 2017
Saturday 15th July 2017
Saturday 2nd September 2017
Saturday 14th October 2017

 

Please book in advance as there will be a maximum of 12 adults per session. Book now on 01299 861368 or email [email protected]

'An Oasis"

'Beautiful place with a fantastic array of specimen shrubs and trees. A favourite place to engender peace especially by the lovely fountain. Ponds, maze, play area, cafe and peacocks! Not forgetting the passing sound of steam trains.'
