Amenities & services

Painting short breaks

We are professional artists trained at The Royal Academy School, London and Edinburgh College of Arts, should you wish to seek inspiration from the beautiful surroundings and landscapes this region offers and improve your drawing and painting skills, Keith Dunkley, RA Schools trained, former tutor will be pleased to arrange drawing/painting lessons, catering for your levels and interests "My courses are designed for beginners or advanced students and provide drawing and painting skills as well as helping to acquire a vital notion of how we perceive the subject. Simple exercises examine how we see and how we use form, light and tones to descrive a chosen subject. They build, step by step a repertoire of skills and techniques but more importantly, provide the opportunity to discover and establish your individual vision". For more details, please contact us.
