Ways to enjoy your art in 2018

During 2018 tony is offering courses from his own home studio in Cornwall, plus the Cober Hill Hotel, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, and the Old House Studio, Derbyshire.

All courses provide a relaxing friendly atmosphere in small groups wishing to enjoy and develop their artistic path alongside a professional long time artist of repute. Keeping groups small enables maximum attention and guidance to each participant at the speed and level they feel most comfortable with.

During summer months Tony with his local knowledge of Cornwall (where he lives and works) and Scarborough (his previous home and studio) will take you to carefully selected stunning coastal and landscape locations. If the weather turns (which is rare) reverting to the studio to develop work from images collected, have a demonstration and discuss aspects of art and media of interest.
