Art in Action Art Courses


The programme of courses for 2015 held in the elegant surroundings of Waterperry House and gardens is now available.  As well as our established favourites there are some new courses – Stone Carving with Brian Nyanhongo,  Mindfulness Drawing with Jeffery Courtney, A Window on to a Bigger World with Sarah Spackman and two courses with Julie Collins, Creating Still Life in Watercolour and Freedom in Watercolour.

We are again offering some courses in Fulham, London and Patrick Cullen is running a new course called Working from the Figure in May.

Students who have come over the past few years particularly mention the lovely atmosphere of Waterperry House and gardens as well as the studio in Fulham and say how they are conducive to creative work.  They also mention the fine care, attention and encouragement that the tutors give and how inspiring and enjoyable they find the courses.  We hope you will come and enjoy the courses in 2015.  Please click below on the course title to be directed to a page with full information and a pdf which you can download giving details of what materials are required and some information about the tutor.
