There is a much needed break for lunch before completing the day’s work at 4pm. The emphasis is on enjoying the painting process through an informal and friendly atmosphere. As a result this workshop is suitable for beginners right up to experienced painters. Student are encouraged to learn from their peers, so that everyone can add to the group dynamic.
