Summer Workshops and Last Minute Gift Idea

Harriet by Paul Newton

Choose from a weekend workshop in watercolours to extended workshops in oils, portraiture, figures and still life. For beginners or experienced artists, we have a workshop for you to enjoy while learning new skills this summer from award winning artists and finalists like Archibald finalists Paul Newton and Christopher Browne.

Treat yourself or book or book a workshop as a wonderful xmas gift. We also have gift vouchers available for your artistic loved ones to apply to their own choice of course or workshop.
