for ART COURSE WITH SANDY GRANT
Anyone can learn to draw and paint – all you need is enthusiasm!
We all have far more artistic ability than we are aware of; with the right approach and guidance, everyone who wishes can produce amazing drawings and paintings. Complete beginners are very welcome.
Sandy has worked as a drawing and painting tutor for over a decade running classes across Scotland. From weekly life drawing classes held at the Botanics since 2009, Sandy now offers a whole range of drawing and painting classes to cater for complete beginners, amateurs and artists. He has been running painting holidays for the last four years and is delighted to be doing one in France.
La Roane is the perfect setting for anyone wishing to develop their artistic abilities. You will be working with many materials to try out expressive mark making, understanding colour, portraying light and shadow, observational drawing, mastering perspective, composition and many more subjects. The work either takes place outside in the grounds of La Roane and in the landscape nearby – the Gorges of the Aveyron are only a ten minute walk away; with warm temperatures each day it is perfect weather for drawing and painting in the open air. There is also a large indoor studio in case of a rainy day.
The price includes accommodation in a twin bedded room (£50 single supplement), breakfast, lunch and dinner, drinks and snacks are available all day. The food is one of the highlights of La Roane, it is all vegetarian and freshly prepared by our chef Enzo. Wine is served with the evening meal. Two excursions are also included one to our local market in the medieval village of Saint Antonin, and one either canoeing, exploring a village or going on a walk.
