PAINT THE WALLED GARDEN - in person workshop, Dumfries House

Notify me when this product is available:

Enjoy TWO DAYS of painting in one of the most beautiful gardens in Ayrshire! 

10am-4pm each day

Total immersion for TWO WHOLE DAYS of painting the gorgeous blooms, engulfed in the glorious scents of summer in the Walled Garden at Dumfries House ... and let's not forget the vegetable garden which can be equally inspiring!

We'll be painting both outside en plein air and in the studio - you'll be encouraged to find YOUR inspiration, working in sketchbooks and creating a small series of paintings from your experience.

You'll be encouraged to work expressively, intuitively, abstractly if you choose and if you've never tried plein air painting, then this might be the perfect time!

The Walled Garden Pavilion will be your studio for the weekend and we'll start each day (as we do in DH) with a glass of Bucks Fizz and a chat about the plans and ideas. 

I will be on hand for guidance, discussion and of course, happy to demo throughout. 

Top up with some tea/coffee and shortbread throughout the weekend as and when you need, with a light lunch of soup and sandwich each day and a time to catch up with your fellow artists.

During the two days, we will collectively produce a small painting en plein air in acrylics & oils - materials for this will be supplied.

This workshop is NOT suitable for beginners.

Bucks fizz, tea/coffee, refreshments, light lunch 

ONLY materials & surface for the mini en plein air painting included - please bring whatever materials and surfaces you'd like to work with outwith this.

You'll receive an email on the Monday before the workshop with all info you need for the weekend - please check spam*
