Creative Workshops

In studio based workshops Robert encourages a more experimental approach to painting and drawing with a variety of chosen media. The learning experience for participants is always an exciting one with a loose and contemporary style being encouraged. Experimentation is the key to success and as such students are given the confidence to ‘let go’ and enjoy the day for a creatively engaging learning experience.

With regular demonstrations, group and one to one tuition throughout each workshop students will gain a greater insight into studio working practices to get the best from their photographs, sketches and support material so students personal goals and creative ideas are achieved.

"Workshops, talks and presentations are an ongoing part of my professional creative activities and now and then I will organise my own. Workshops are very popular too with many art clubs and art societies with many having repeat bookings!"

If you wish to discuss a workshop for your particular group and have a particular subject in mind, please do get in touch.

Future and current workshops to suit many levels of ability to include The Peak District, The Wirral and North Norfolk are featured below.
