Apologies but the 2017 dates have now been canceled this is due to building work being carried out at our home that has unfortunatley over run the planned schedule.
HOWEVER don't despair I am rescheduling the painting break for Spring 2018 WATCH THIS SPACE FOR THE 2018 DATES
My Painting breaks are designed for Beginners Intermediate & Experienced painters
The break is over 3 days Tuesday Wednesday & Thursday.
Each day you will complete a different painting. The subjects you will be painting include Landscape Seascapel & Wildlife however these could be subject to change
Over the course of the 3 days you will learn different techniques using oils and acryllis & much much more....
The day starts at 10am & will finish at approx. 5pm.
All materials are provided for the three days, along with a light lunch & refreshments
throughout the week (Please wear old clothing just in case you do get
paint on yourself !)
The cost for the week is £200 per person including your tuition and a light lunch each day. However if you do have any food allergies or food intolerances please
understand that these cannot be catered for so it is essential you bring
your own packed lunch with you.
The cost of the painting break does not include your accommodation, & any other costs
that you may incur.
Frames for your paintings are available to buy & prices start from £14
I have limited the painting break to a maximum of 5 students per week this ensures you receive the best

book early to avoid disappointment.

Some Student comments on previous Painting Breaks Patrick Radcliffe-Congratulations
on the Painting Break-Easily the Best in Recent Years-Elated by the Progress I
Val Bryant-It was
a Fabulous Week-Hope to have more of your Wonderful Instruction Next Year
thanks again-You were superb as always, the Patience of a Saint-You always had
a smile & a reassuring manner that got us all through. Every Painting a
Reiki Master/Teacher & Artist Thank You for a wonderful week with
Art-it was not only the learning about the Bob Ross Technique and how to create
a painting good enough to frame & take home and be proud of-I learnt a lot
more about me (every picture tells a story) To learn to express oneself through
art is a powerful tool-even if you have never painted in your life before.
took us all through step by beautiful step & just like Bob Ross
encouraged each individual equally to create their world on canvas. Still painting
the same subject, they were all so different.
As for the group, we all came
from different walks of life, lovely to see couples painting together &
friends. We had special treats -like a demo with Terri & Paul also Bob Ross
Instructors and an evening with all three at the Black Rabbit a lovely country
inn. We all bonded & there was so much laughter. You have the choice of a
quiet time or a get together with the other students. We all helped each other
& there were was no competition.
I found the course healing &
empowering. I shall definitely do more...
