Autumn Classes at Norton Conyers

We will be focusing on the use of acrylic and oil paints paying particular attention to landscape, portraiture and the figure

Courses follow an ‘atelier style’ format of mentorship so that all standards and age ranges can be accommodated, from complete novice through to degree level, from student to retiree (the studio is at the top of a flight of steps so may not be suitable for the infirm).

Classes cost £35 per day payable on commencement. You will need to bring materials of your choice (Acrylic or oil and a drawing medium) + a support – canvas, board etc and a packed lunch. We have tea and coffee making facilities & microwave.

Suggested Palette:

Titanium White, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Permanent Magenta, French Ultramarine, Cobalt Blue, Raw Sienna, Lamp Black.

Autumn Term Dates

Autumn classes will begin again in mid October (date to be confirmed) and in order to ensure social distancing, classes will be split into two days (Tues & Wed) with a maximum of 5 students per day. This means that there will be a couple of spaces for new students. If you’d like to join us, contact the gallery.
