COURSES

We hold courses on weekdays, evenings and weekends.
In addition we also host summer schools & longer courses and  classes for young artists.

WEEKDAYS

Workshops and classes 

There are regular weekday classes and workshops in oil painting, ceramic life modelling and life drawing. You may prefer to learn traditional methods and trusted techniques, but there’s room for free expression and experimentation. On Tuesdays we open the studio to those who want to work in their own way but in a shared, relaxed and friendly space – these happen virtually every week (bar the odd break).

10am – 4pm unless otherwise stated

Mondays: Oil Painting Class

Creative Tuesdays

Wednesdays: Clay Life & Portrait Modelling (Untutored) 10 week terms throughout the year

Thursdays: Tutored Clay Life & Portrait Modelling (10 week terms throughout the year)

Life Drawing with Sally Fisher 

  • Friday 30th June

  • (NB Sally’s classes sell out fast so book in advance to avoid disappointment!)

EVENINGS

Private and group tuition for young artists – Tuesdays after school

WEEKENDS

At weekends you may find a mosaic being pieced together, a wishing stone in the raku kiln, or ceramic fauna evolving. Natural art workshops combine meditation with intuitive and expressive art making. Our weekend workshops are very popular. Keep checking the website for updates because we are adding more courses all the time.

SUMMER SCHOOLS, SUMMER COURSES & WORKSHOPS

The Phoenix Studio is a fabulous place to be in the summertime. Our summer schools, weekday courses & workshops offer a bit more time to work on more ambitious projects, experiment and extend your boundaries – or to simply idle in the wildflower meadow and watch the world go by.
