Residential Painting Class

About Residential Painting Class

Join our 2-day residential painting class with artist and educator Steve Bretel.

This workshop is suitable for all skill levels and will include sketching with graphite and charcoal, detailed drawings with pencil, using water-based paints or inks and much more. The workshop is a mixture of demonstrations, instructions and feedback. All materials are supplied.

This residential art class is based at Hill of Tarvit Mansion, which was built in 1906 by Frederick Sharp as a family home to host his family’s substantial collection of art, silver, furniture, ceramics and porcelain. Today it’s one of the few complete collections still remaining in its original place.

Designed by Robert Lorimer, Hill of Tarvit Mansion is an architectural, design and state-of-the-art treasure in its own right with magnificent wood panelling and plasterwork. The quality and detail of the house is reflected in the landscaped gardens and grounds, combining true grandness with the comforts of a modern family home of its time.

The course includes:

2-night shared accommodation in our self-catering cottages (2–3 people per cottage with a private bedroom each, shared sitting room, kitchen and bathroom – bedrooms can be shared if desired)

Light lunches and refreshments on Saturday and Sunday

Introductory talk and get together on Friday evening

Tuition from 10am–1pm and 2–5pm on Saturday and Sunday

Classes will be held in the Conservatory, Great Hall and the Gardens

All materials are provided

Maximum class size is 10 people

Price per person: £485.00

All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
