The aim of the course is to explore the exhilarating world of painting and mixed media.

Set aside many of the anxieties associated around using mixed media and painting.

This fascinating, practical and fun 3-day workshop will equip the beginner to the professionals with new techniques and skills.

Gain a greater understanding of different applications of mixed media, whilst allowing the freedom to experiment and create exciting visual and textual paintings.

Learn to think creatively, process ideas cohesively and compliment your paintings.

A mixture of exercises and self directed painting allows for an informative and exciting course.

Using the beautiful landscape around the farm we will have the luxury of being able to paint outside in different locations, all under Ruth’s guidance.

Groups are deliberately kept small and there is plenty of time to develop and formulate ideas and lines of enquiries.

Ruth will support and advice throughout and show you new techniques and skills, whilst encouraging your own visual language to blossom.

There will be opportunities to also go off-site to sketch and paint depending on the group and enjoy a visit to Ruth’s studio.
