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. 

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