Gartmore House are introducing the Mixed Media Course into the calendar for 2016.
Monday 15th August – Friday 19th August 2016
We are delighted to be working with Nigel Overton to deliver this new course designed to help those who wish to develop their drawing and painting ability using a range of different media.
Nigel studied Drawing Painting & Printmaking at Loughborough College of Art & Design.
He has worked with a wide range of different media but in recent years has mainly worked in Acrylics. Whichever medium he has used however, he has always maintained his belief in the importance of drawing, both in his own work and within his teaching of the subject.
His fascination with Landscapes & Seascapes has remained since his early years as an art student, and drawing and painting continue to provide him with the visual means of expressing his personal and emotional response to an ever-changing subject.
Formerly Head of Art & Design at Benton Park School in Leeds, Nigel now paints professionally and teaches day and residential classes.
Nigel has work in private collections in America, Canada, New Zealand, France, Germany, Netherlands and Australia.
The course will cost £495 and will include 4 nights accommodation, tuition and all catering.
Please see below a very rough outline to the course, which provides more information on what topics will be covered during the week.
