This 12-week course, in the morning or afternoon, will encourage creative thought and help participants gain confidence through developing a strong set of artistic skills. Participants will experiment with a variety of materials such as pencils, charcoal, pastels, pen, ink and paint. Using the wide variety of source material available, including the park, walled garden, the house and sculptures, participants will be inspired to create works of art they can be proud of.
When the weather permits, classes will take place out on the grounds of the park. When the creation of work is confined to the studio, participants will develop their portraiture and still-life skills.
