Painting Holidays in Cornwall

 Jojo is now hosting painting holidays in Cornwall.  An experienced Art teacher and tutor, she will be running new residential sketching and painting courses in Crantock, near Newquay, on Cornwall's stunning north coast.

Staying at the welcoming, family-run Fairbank Hotel, enjoy a relaxing three full days of sketching and painting around Crantock's fantastic coastline.



With one-to-one tuition and small classes, you will have the opportunity to sketch and paint 'A Plein Air' in pastels and oil paint. Previous experience is not necessary although students of all abilities will be supported with personal tuition to develop skills in landscape painting.             

You will learn about colour mixing, using brushes and palette knives, sketching and composition and encouraged to develop your own style and creative expression.

Painting outdoors is, naturally, subject to weather conditions. If the weather proves too inclement then Fairbank Hotel has a suitable conservatory space, with lovely garden and sea views, that can serve as a studio.

Materials and equipment will be provided. Note that we will use water-mixable oil paint to reduce odour and for ease-of-use. It is a medium that differs very little from traditional oil paint. For more information about the course and to book, please use the contact form or phone 01637 830 188.
