Monday classes that fall on a bank holiday will go ahead but if you are unable to attend it will be possible to make up a class later in the term.

Due to the use of life models my classes are only suitable for students aged 14 years and over.

One-day Weekend Art Workshops

Held at Dr Neil's Garden, Duddingston, EH15 3PX

one day classes Landscape at Dr Neil's Garden - £65
The course is inspired by the variety of beautiful the greenery of Dr Neil's garden, where we will draw and use pastels or any other media you bring along. We will be ready for all weather conditions with sheltered, shady and wind free spots, all with excellent views.

If the weather is inclement the greenhouse and high walls provide protection from wind and rain. A cushion in a plastic bag is very handy, so you can sit anywhere or a folding chair.
