For over a century, artists have been drawn to Cornwall....inspired by its spectacular unspoiled coastline and the unique translucent quality of the light it reflects. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, Cornwall’s mild subtropical climate attracts artists all year round.
Watercolourists, acrylics painters, oils painters, pastelists, and other media are welcome to join Tony, who along with his wife Eileen, have run art break courses for over two decades. With his vast experience all levels from beginners to professioanal artists are welcomed and guided as befits their needs.
Articles on his work and techniques are regularly featured in leading art magazines including the Leisure Painter, Artists & illustrators, the Artist, Paint and Paint & Draw.
Through the years Tony has made many T.V. appearances, painting views and demonstrating how to achieve the best results with different media
Courses are based at his private studio in the delightful market town of Wadebridge near the north Cornish coasts holiday resorts of Padstow and Rock. In the middle of the Camel trail from Bodmin to Padstow.
Courses are non-residential with participants joining the group daily after breakfast and spending the rest of the day, up to and including, a four course evening meal with the group. All meals and tea/coffee breaks are provided throughout the day (except break-fast).
Special diets are catered for as required.
When painting en-plein air a pack up lunch is provided but if in the studio (should the weather be inclement) then all meals are taken in the home of Tony & Eileen.
Many participants use their time with us as part of a longer stay in the area, bringing with them family and friends who enjoy all the wonders Cornwall has to offer.
Suggestions on local B & B’s, camp sites (both static and touring), hotels or holiday cottages can be provided.
