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.

The course is fully inclusive of tutoring, en suite accommodation (no single room supplement) and all meals.   A large, light, airy studio is available for indoor painting and transport to en plein air locations is provided when applicable.

We start with the group gathering on the MONDAY at 3pm in the studio on day of arrival where there will be an introductory talk followed by a demonstration before your evening meal.

On TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY those wishing to learn and enjoy to paint en plain air, will be escorted to a sight in or around Scarborough accompanied by Tony.  Anyone wishing to stay and work in the studio is welcome to do so.  For those working en plein air we leave the hotel approximately 10am after a hearty breakfast and return around 2pm to the studio.  At approximately  3pm on these two days Tony will give further demonstrations using different media and techniques for those wishing to watch before the evening meal.  After your meal the studio will be available to continue painting or just chill out in a comfortable lounge with a glass of wine/coffee?

On THURSDAY the en plein air painting is done in the extensive grounds of the hotel throughout the day (or of course if desired just use the studio). Again on the THURSDAY after the evening meal, for those wishing to do so, we meet in the studio for the art work produced during the course to be reviewed and discussed by Tony.

Cober Hill is in a delightful location on the Whitby road from Scarborough set in its own private grounds which, in themselves, offer many painting opportunities.

The course concludes after breakfast on the FRIDAY.

Tony is internationally recognised as a professional artist and tutor with artwork in homes and galleries around the world.

He works for many leading manufacturers as an ambassador and demonstrator along with T.V. , exhibitions and writing magazine articles for art magazines.

The cost inclusive of en-suite accommodation all meals, studio and tuition is £621.
