The Art Breaks

Explore the stunning North Cornwall landscape with a sketchbook, then return back to base to create your own mixed media painting. Experiment with approaches for altering your sketchbook pages to enliven your drawings, and learn techniques for turning your sketches into paintings. All under the guidance of enthusiastic tutors who will encourage and support you to explore your creativity in your own way.
There'll also be a specially designed 'Leafscape' workshop with experienced tutor Liz Gregory, to show you how to use found natural materials to make eye-catching pictures.
