    Is the studio open every day or just on occasions . I would like to make an informal visit. I’m booked on your pastels course in August. Prefer daytime classes on the whole. Does the lift go up to studio level ? Really enjoyed reading all information about your art and the mill

      Hi Maureen.
      Thank you for booking on my Summer holiday course. The lift does goes to the 5th floor. I have sent you an email which will more fully answer your questions. Best regards, Brian

    Hello Brian,
    I would like to know more about painting with texture courses please. When do you have classes? How much does it cost?
    Thanks Adelita

      Hi Adelita
      The next course is 9-10 March 2019 (sat + Sun). The cost is £135 which includes most materials like paint and other mixed media we use. I do ask students to bring sketchbooks, pencils, rubbers, etc which is all listed on the website. I hope this helps. Email brian@creativeartcourses.org if you have any more questions.

    I’m 15 and I was wondering which courses are available for young teens as I was looking an the website and I would like to do many of the courses but I’m not sure if they’re all for adults and it’s only the youth+teens course that is available for me.i need to do it for 3 or maybe 6 months averaging out as an hour per week for my Duke of Edinburgh do you think it would be okay to start one? What do you recommend

      HI Eishita
      Good to hear from you and well done for doing the DoE!
      As you rightly understand – the teenage-youth class is the only class I offer for students of your age. The youth-teenage art class are on Sundays (about 5 hours a day), about once a month or so. I hope this helps. Email me directly if you have any more questions. Best regards, Brian
