Life is a bed of roses (just watch out for the thorns!)
Appreciate nature whilst documenting or drawing inspiration from her form. We’ll start with measured drawing and lessons on tone. We’re not expecting perfection but we will help you find your route in: whether widely expressive or insanely perfect. We’re here to get you started.
This 5-day course is suitable for anyone who wishes to develop processes of figurative to abstract painting and drawing methods.
During the week you’ll be taught by presentation, technical demonstration and hands on technical training as well as through a series of exercises.
The course is suitable for beginner to advanced level students and has been carefully structured to support individual needs and requirements: from the basics in anatomical drawing, to lessons in flesh tones and colour mixing to contemporary approaches. We offer the freedom to respond to the figure in a personal manner and offer creative directional support if required.
The course has been carefully devised and tested over time and seems to work with all students. Over the weekend we will systematically take you through exercises and impart professional techniques whilst teaching. Students not only learn about oils but make significant personal progress thanks to the high-grade creative directional support from highly experienced painters.

New marks, new ideas, new ways of seeing
We’ll encourage you to take a fresh and experimental approach to painting and drawing in a variety of media. From smaller scale observational drawings to larger-scale experimental work.
Art coach and gallery represented artists K Kennedy has developed a 2 day course centred around her own teaching method :informed by her extensive subjects knowledge, painting and teaching experience. This method consistently yields rapid results for beginners and improvers who wish to take up or develop their painting or drawing skills.
On day 1, K Kennedy coaches in some drawing basics to ensure students are confident and versed in some basics which then carry across into better painting and the ability to tackle still lives or land or seascapes whatever a student’s initial starting point in drawing. K Kennedy own focus is in helping students of all abilities find their route into painting or drawing: and to embrace and celebrate natural tendencies: whether that be naive art or high realism. In the afternoon, K Kennedy will cover acrylic basics but will thrown in some professional ints, tips and that will help to give beginners and improvers the edge.
On day 2, we’ll start with some exercises prior to planning work on a stretched canvas or board. For those wishing to progress to oils we’ll teach basic oil paint handling advise. Beginners will be directed towards a simple style life painting whereas more experienced students will be free to choose a subject and painting style approach with creative directional support on hand.
