Painting holidays in Cornwall
"Tim has changed my life! I can honestly say in a few days I progressed more than I could have dreamed under Tim’s diligent and expert help.
I shall be booking in again". Anneka Rice. Entertainer
“... I have had the time of my life..” Liz Walker, Stirling.
For the beginner or more accomplished painter these courses and classes are designed to benefit and inspire all. Tim hall has taught in London and Esher for over ten years before moving to Cornwall two years ago, and is fully qualified in a multitude of media. A comprehensive tutelage in all aspects of painting and drawing is available.
The courses/classes begin in the studios at Rose Farm. Here you will meet your tutor in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and discuss the outline of your tuition. We are motivated to break down all fears and insecurities that can present themselves to the painter, whether that be fear of painting in public, working from life, unknown media, the list is bountiful as are the solutions! Students are encouraged to paint outside at one of the local beauty spots such as the picturesque harbour village of Mousehole or the majestic St. Michaels Mount.
There are also extensive and varied demonstrations and exercises from the studio. Cornwall has long been regarded as a haven for the painter with panoramic coastal views, coves, caves, valleys and woodlands. Marine subjects are abundant with Newlyn and St. Ives nearby.
“ I came to this course from N.Z.I expected a lot, but Tim, you made it all possible!
You made it such fun I could hardly bear to stop painting at the end of each day!! Gill Hubble, Auckland. N.Z.
If required, accommodation at Rose farm is delightful with Penny Lally a caring and helpful host. Choose from the splendid four-poster bed suite or one of the other two charming rooms. Rose farm itself is an ancient historical site with magnificent expansive scenery.
We can also offer a selection of B&B’s, holiday cottages in the nearby seaside village of Mousehole. Or at The Hotel Penzance, which boasts an award winning restaurant and superb sea views.
These holidays are not restricted to just painters, non painting partners will find an abundant array of activities nearby such as yoga, golf, surfing, fishing, hiking or just lying on one of the many beautiful beaches, come on your own or with friends. However, class sizes are restricted to a maximum of six. (Exceptions can be made with prior booking for larger groups such as art societies, groups of friends, school/university courses and an alternative family holiday- we have had three generations at one point this year!)
