Art Class Experience


Helen. A woman of many talents. Celebrated local artist. Accomplished cook. Her wall heaves with ‘Best in Show’ rosettes. Spend an afternoon with Helen and come away with your own prized art work and a belly full of her delicious food.

Working with pastels on black sandpaper, and with an optional glass of wine to get the creative juices flowing, Helen will take you step by step through the easy technique to produce a landscape portrait of your own. For those who prefer the human form then life drawing is also available with a model if you can spare the blushes!

Her reassuring and informative teaching style will ensure all ages and abilities produce a work to be proud of, with a few giggles along the way.

A delicious lunch will be served where you will be able to enjoy Helen’s delicious food and find out for yourself why she often causes stampedes at any ‘Bring and Share’ buffet table. Make sure you leave some room to try her delicious sweets.

If the weather is fine classes and/or lunch can be taken outside, otherwise they can be held in your holiday accommodation (space permitting) or the local village hall.

Life drawing and lunch £68/per person
Minimum 8 people. For smaller groups please get in touch for prices.
