My new garden studio is now completed, it just needs furnishing, painting and making it ready for my first workshops. This is in my garden here in Blackpool, England.
It should be up and running by the August of 2016. There will be a maximum of 4 people for a 5 day workshop ( 9:30am – 5:30pm ). I will provide all equipment and materials, morning coffee, a light lunch and afternoon tea.
I will be charging £325 per person for a 5 day workshop ( £195 for a 3 day workshop ). There will be regular 1 day workshops for local artists and occasional weekend workshops, as it’s only a small group there will be plenty of one to one tuition. I will paint at least 1 demo per day and we will have at least one day painting on location ( weather permitting ) and painting from life in the studio, either a model or a still life, all this will depend on what the majority wants to do. We will also cover drawing, composition, colour theory and an insight into my way of working.
Now the studio is complete we will have to finish landscaping the garden, lots of patio area for Al fresco dining and I’m hoping to have a pizza oven and BBQ area built, then we just need a summer!
