Thank you for your interest in our course. The accommodation at the centre is full, however we work closely with the local B&Bs to offer participants the chance to attend as a non-resident and stay within the local area. If you would like to attend as a non-resident provisionally book your place on the course and then confirm your accommodation. Please contact FSC Flatford Mill for a list of local B&Bs and hotels. The non-resident price includes evening meal and packed lunch.

This weekend course is for complete beginners who have always wanted to 'have a go', but have never had the courage! There will be carefully structured drawing and painting exercises, introducing the qualities of the materials and showing how to draw outlines, mix and lay colour washes and use tone to give your paintings depth. There will be plenty of time to practise the techniques and develop your skills, giving you confidence to share the joys and overcome the initial frustrations of this popular medium. Some of the time will be spent in the studio, but we will venture out to paint ‘en plein air’ in the second half of the course.

Andrew Pitt has had many one-man exhibitions and is an experienced tutor and demonstrator. He frequently runs painting workshops for art societies and is also a regular contributor to the Leisure Painter magazine. This is his 11th consecutive season as an Associate Tutor at Flatford Mill.
