Drawing and Painting – This course is for beginners and intermediate levels and for those who wish to brush up their basic skills; a mixed ability group. You will cover colour, composition, perspective and basic techniques of drawing and painting. Andy (Russell) works primarily in acrylics but will also cover oil paints and has a basic knowledge of watercolour. Life models are available for a reasonable hourly rate, please contact me prior to the start of the course if you are interested in this option During the week’s course you will learn through practice and experience, and gain confidence in your ability to produce tonal paintings. To view examples of Andy’s work go to the Gallery.

Non-Residential Art Courses – Ideally suited to people who live locally. We follow the same course content as the residential painting holidays. We offer day classes, weekend breaks, short courses or one to one tuition. Times and dates are flexible to suit individuals and groups. Courses are available for adults in small groups, a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 8.

Tailored Painting Courses – We are happy to design an art course to suit your individual or a groups requirements; at a time that suits you. Group courses are for a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 8 and can be held at our Centre or the tutor can travel to you.

Tuition –┬áThe tuition offered during your holiday will be tailored to suit your ability level and your own wishes. You will receive a minimum of 21 hours tuition per week. We discuss with all students prior to the start of their course what each hopes to gain from the week. If you are a beginner we offer more studio tuition, the more experienced will have time to practice their skills and refer to the tutor, as they require.

Groups of Artists – Exclusive use of the Painting in Spain house and studio is available to groups of artists or to tutor led groups who prefer to structure their own art holiday. Contact me direct for more details.
