Outstanding and highly acclaimed artist, Tom Coates will be running this three day course aimed at students who have a solid grounding in oil painting. This is a ‘master-class’ style of painting holiday and suitable for experienced students wishing to achieve a good exhibition standard.

The first day of this three day course will be studio-based with a focus on studies of the figure. Day two and three will be on location landscape painting.

Tom will work on his own paintings and will encourage students to learn by example and to work alongside him. Although Tom will be demonstrating in watercolour and oils, students may paint in any medium.
