Art Holidays and short breaks

Robert is an experienced art tutor with an energetic style of teaching and encourages students to have as many first hand experiences as possible directly in the landscape. Connecting with and experiencing the landscape, really looking and engage with the this most compelling of subjects, students have an enriched learning experience.

Throughout all of Robert's art holidays and short breaks, students confidence grows to new heights. Exciting demonstrations, group and one to one tuition ensure students creative boundaries are extended through relaxed, patient, professional and informative tuition. Helping students move forward with their own artistic direction rather than dictating a particular style is what Robert's art holidays and short breaks are all about.

His wealth of creative experience and knowledge of different media in practice has been recognised by leading art brands. Robert is a highly acclaimed demonstrator and Associate Artist for ‘Derwent’ and ‘Nitram Charcoal’, a UK Ambassador for Canson and works closely with leading art brand Royal Talens from Holland.
