Tony Hogan - Fun Painting Adventure

Creative holidays at Cober Hill
Tony Hogan art class at Cober Hill


As a professional artist, Tony’s lifetime of experience and knowledge, helping others along their artistic path, is the mantra of these courses.

Internationally recognised for his easy and relaxed way of tutoring others, Tony’s own art work is hung in locations around the world. He trained at Bradford College of Art in the early sixties, and has dedicated his life as a professional artist, tutor and demonstrator in both the commercial and fine art world ever since.

For several decades he has organised and run art holiday courses, working with participants of all abilities from complete beginners to working professionals. Having tutored fine art degrees for the Open College of the Arts, he explains all media and techniques as desired by those joining the course.

Tony is a regular contributor to the Leisure Painter and other art magazines, with features on media, techniques and styles. He is highly sought after by leading art suppliers to give demonstrations at art fairs and art societies. Plus having appeared many times on T.V.

Our spring and summer courses offer the opportunity to capture stunning vistas around Scarborough en-plein air, or enjoy staying in the large well lit studio to work.

On arrival on the Monday afternoon there is an introduction and a demonstration to enjoy. The next few days provide the chance to paint/draw great views which can then be further developed the same day in the studio. On two of the evenings, after a delicious meal, Tony will give additional demonstrations showing different techniques and using various meduim.

November offers a NEW and exciting opportunity to be experienced here at Cober Hill with Tony. On this course the concept will be to work mainly in the comforable surroundings of the Joseph Rowntree Studio alongside and under the supervision of Tony. With the added opportunity of painting and sketching in the extensive grounds, with its spectacular views and unique vista.
