We are proud to be hosting a  5 day drawing and watercolour event at the PowderMills Hotel. We will be spending the mornings in the classroom and the afternoons wondering the grounds, looking for little gems to paint. The PowderMills is a beautiful Grade II listed Hotel, a restored Georgian Country House in acres of landscaped gardens. There are lakes, woods and fields within walking distance of the medieval town of Battle, the Abbey and the Battlefields of 1066.

 

On the Monday we will be focusing on drawing and sketching skills. The following days will be concentrating on watercolour techniques. ​

Each day, classes will start at 10.30am and finish at 4.00pm with an hour break for lunch. At the end of the daily sessions those staying at the hotel can continue to paint, make use of the outdoor pool or indulge in a Sussex Cream Tea.

The hotel is offering a group discount for those of you wishing to treat it as a relaxing holiday break, however you do not need to stay at the hotel to attend the event. Just quote 'ART EVENT' when booking direct with the hotel for accommodation.

We are delighted to be hosting a 7 night watercolour event at Blackadon Farm, an award winning self catering accommodation. Set on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and enjoying unrivalled peace and tranquility of the beauty of the moors. We are hiring specialist chefs to cook for us through out the the week, so we can concentrate on the important things … PAINTING!

 

We are offering 5 days of art lessons, demonstrations, and tuition with both Paul and Margot who will be on hand to support and encourage you in your art journey. You will also have a free day on which to explore on your own.

 

The cottages are so much more than just a place to stay, they offer a unique oasis for you to follow your love of watercolour painting, be it out on the moors or in the class room environment.

If your partner is not interested in the art there is plenty to keep them occupied. There are extensive hiking trails across the moors as well as an 18 hole golf course within walking distance of the farm. The nearby port city of Plymouth is only 12 miles away with a host of shops, restaurants and museums.

THE CATERING

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be prepared daily by the ‘Dartmoor Larder’, offering delicious and plentiful food, freshly prepared and served in the Great Barn. All meals are made to the highest standard offering a wide selection of nutritious, flavoursome food.

 

In the evenings join Paul and Margot for pre-dinner drinks and some social pass times.
