Watercolour, Oil, Acrylic, Mixed Media and Collage Workshops and Painting Holidays.
Learn to master painting techniques in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Claire currently runs regular full day painting workshops in Berkshire, Northamptonshire and surrounding areas, 2/3 day painting breaks in the Cotswolds and Emsworth in Hampshire, plus painting holidays in Cornwall, and Valencia and Andalucia in Southern Spain. Other foreign and domestic locations such as Italy and Spain, plus the West Country and Shropshire for instance are with well known holiday companies. There are also art group venues accross the UK.
Her "hands on" workshops are designed to help students complete a finished picture every day. Each stage is demonstrated step by step covering key topics and techniques essential to creating a successful painting.
Groups of 8 to 16 students are usually catered for, but one very well attended popular and spacious local venue can be up to 25 (includes lunch). She also teaches 1-2-1, couples and small groups of family or friends or smaller art groups on request. Plenty of people give workshops as gifts, and we produce just the right gift card for each purpose and venue.
Beginners are nurtured and more experienced artists stretched. In each workshop Claire gives plenty of individual attention to each student and ensures they can finish a picture in a day.
She is a demonstrator for SAA Watercolours, Acrylics and Artist Quality Oil paints, and uses Saunders Waterford top quality heavyweight watercolour paper.
Her fabulous and unique range of honey watercolours, developed with a famous paint chemist are brightening up pictures everywhere. Some even eliminate complicated mixing of multiple colours.
She has also now included new Pebeo paints, mixed media and collage to her teaching range. All artists are finding this a new and liberating way to express their art and the results are often astonishing.
Long distance venues are getting more popular with a famous art group recently booking Claire for a one day workshop in the Lake District in February 2017. We have a large motorhome for this purpose and offer the best prices on round trips. Larger groups can dilute the costs best or we encourage joining with other groups to be able to make workshops more affordable and gain this level of teaching and successful painting.
Some artists have been travelling to her fabulous and exclusive local hilltop venue at Broughton Grange outside Kettering for one and two day events from as far away as London and the West Country for some time. Good local accommodation and food nearby can be very reasonable making a short weekend break very affordable. Some art buddies and small groups even car share for a day.
