Feel the sea breeze in your hair and listen to the crash of waves as you sketch dramatic ruins, castles, picturesque villages and puffins! 

Sketching outdoors in the sunshine!  Find inspiration in the colours and shapes of the wild Northumberland coast.  Out and about, sketching and painting en plein air, we spend time on Holy Island and at Lindisfarne Priory, Bamburgh Castle, and the delightful coast village of Alnmouth.

There is also the exciting option of a boat trip to the Farne Islands, a sanctuary for seabirds and seals. June is the height of the puffin breeding season, so there will be plenty of opportunities to paint these endearing and unforgettable birds too.

Art Safari tutor Karen Pearson leads this short art break with demonstrations, exercises and one to-one tuition time. She encourages you to fill your sketchbooks with sweeping brush strokes, vast skies, watery reflections and colourful fishing boats.

Suitable for artists of all abilities, join Karen for days filled with creativity and inspiration.

TUITION ONLY places available, please ask us for details.
