Landscape Painting in Oils
This two-day, in the studio and ‘En Plein Air’ (weather depending) landscape painting course will give students the opportunity to learn a method of using oil paints that looks more like watercolour in the initial stages.
You will be asked to bring in sketches and photos of a favourite scene and work from these with hopefully the chance of giving the method a go outside in beautiful Cromarty on the second day. There will be demonstrations in the use of oil paints and plenty of one-to-one guidance from tutor Anna Wimbledon.
Participants will be sent a materials list in advance. Suitable for all abilities. Accommodation can be provided.

Celtic Art Workshop
Using the same techniques and materials as the scribes that made the Book of Kells this workshop will involve working on real parchment and mixing traditional pigments to create a work of art inspired by the original insular manuscripts with the help of scribe, illuminator and parchment maker, Thomas Keyes.
This course will involve getting as close to the world of the insular scribe as it’s possible to get and in so doing gain a deeper appreciation of Celtic insular art.
Suitable for anyone with an interest in Celtic art or broadening their range of creative skills. No experience necessary. Accommodation is available.
