Join us for an inspirational 4 day course in location painting and meet like-minded creative students.

An experience lecturer will be on hand to help develop your paint application skills, tonal appreciation, compositional arrangement, and colour mixing techniques.

Initial sketches will be translated and developed into larger paintings tailored to each students personal level and aspirations.

This course offers the opportunity to experience working in oils, watercolour, gouache or acrylic, directly from the landscape in the famous tradition of en plein air.

Locations will include the RGU campus, Stonehaven and Bennachie Visitor Centre.

Tuition on water and oil based mediums will be included as well as advice on brushes and substrates, surfaces and supports. You will be provided with experienced one-to-one tuition as well as group discussions about the work made.

There will also be tuition on a selection of historical and contemporary landscape painters.

Methods of delivery include: demonstrations, individual/group discussion and studio-based practice.
Students are taught by specialist staff who will offer practical advice and instruction together with personal encouragement in discovering individual creative skills. Students will receive general instruction and one-to-one tuition tailored to suit their personal level of experience and ability.
