Inspired Painting Holidays


Studio tuition

Catherine Stott is a professional artist and experienced tutor.

In residencies at Morpeth Folk Gathering, Hexham Abbey, and outdoor summer locations, and through themed exhibitions, she has taken inspiration from varied environments - landscapes, gardens, coasts, villages - and from poetry, music, drama and dance.

In her own work she employs a range of 2D media, and will use her experience as a tutor to help you develop your skills in any non-solvent based medium - for example watercolour, acrylic, soft pastel, water mixable oils, or pen and wash.

Beginners in a medium and more experienced are all welcome. We send out general materials advice and are happy to discuss the best choice for you.

Groups are small- usually 5 to 8 students- there is individual space and support to explore the style and medium which suits you or try something new.
