Residential Oil Painting Art Course

Atelier Programme

Our Atelier programme is split into three stages.  Beginner, Intermediate and Further Studies.  The beginner and intermediate stages each have four modules.  When these two stages have been completed you will be able to progress onto further more complex studies.  Each stage will build your artistic abilities giving you the skills you need to draw and paint to a high standard.

The beginner stage is designed to take you from a novice with no experience to a competent amateur and to prepare you for the intermediate stage ahead.  

We see the Atelier programme as a great pathway for learning how to become a competent artist.  An historic proven method of learning from the Renaissance, as effective today as it was back then in the 16th century.  Each step of the way you will be supported and tutored by a skilled artist, incorporating live demonstrations and a high degree of one on one tuition.

This is a great option for those who do not live locally. Course dates are flexible and run throughout the year in term time. The 10 day course is broken into 2 parts, with a 2 day break in the middle (so it will be a 12 night stay), or can spread the course over more than one visit. Please email us to discuss what dates you would like to be booked into, and check availability. The price includes your course, single occupancy in one of our small double rooms and breakfast. Upgrades and double occupancy is available on request.

This course introduces you to both the "Imprimatura" and "Alla Prima" Renaissance oil painting techniques.  On the first day you will be shown how to produce an imprimatura underpainting of three pairs.  You will then be guided how to turn this chiaroscuro underpainting into a full colour alla prima study.   This is a classical renaissance oil painting method used by many great artists of this period including Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci. Read our Atelier programme page for more detailed information of the course content.
