Rydal Mount on New Year's Day

Side view of Rydal Mount


Tutored by Tyga Helme and Bea Hasell-McCosh, this 2 day course will guide you to develop observational skills and explore the different expressive qualities of drawing and painting. You'll be painting using a limited oil palette.

Alongside observational and technical skills, deeply personal responses are encouraged through different ways of looking and being in the landscape.

The gardens at Rydal Mount are close to how the poet William Wordsworth designed them. He wanted nature to lead the way and his design ethos could be summed up as “defend us from the tyranny of trimness and neatness”.

Join us to explore drawing and painting in this very special landscape. Open level. Limited to 12 students.
