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. What is new, exciting and beneficial to creatively use, Robert’s students are the first to find out about and experience for themselves!

Future and current art holidays with renowned holiday and adult education organisations in The Lake District National Park, The Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire, Northumberland are featured below.

JULY 2024 - Expressive mixed media at Higham Hall

Higham Hall, Cumbria

A very popular art week for the Summer in this unspoilt part of the Lake District National Park painting with fellow artists, with an enriched learning eperience using different drawing and painting media. Landscape subjects are the theme but not necessarily Lake District focussed painting subjects.We explore new painting subjects - your own to bring with you for courses at Higham Hall from now on!

Explore contemporary mixed media techniques using watercolour, gouache, acrylic inks and soft pastel. We may venture outdoors (weather permitting) painting and drawing in a dramatic Lakeland landscape setting but this course mainly focuses on a studio response to our source material (your own sketches, photographs, drawings and so on) with a semi abstract and expressive direction in your paintings.

Sorry, now fully booked!

NOVEMBER 2024 - Expressive acrylic mixed media at Higham Hall

Higham Hall, Cumbria

If you want to explore contemporary acrylic techniques using lots of different acrylic media to include oil pastels, this is the course for you!

We will venturing outdoors (weather permitting) to one of the many inspirational painting locations in the National Park which I have come to know well. Being amongst the the Lakeland landscape is of course exciting and rewarding in terms of creative experience and true comnnection with your surroundings. These first hand experiences help our more focused studio course be enriched in response to these painting experiences.

On the course we will be using other reference material (YOUR OWN sketches, photographs, drawings and so on) with a semi abstract and exploritory direction throughout the week. The exciting techniques you will learn and put into practice yourself provide the perfect creative techniques for your own personal creative development - not only on this course, but for your future as well.
