Wildlife Painting & Drawing Workshops In Pastels, Oils & Graphite

'Just completed Cates 2 day Pastel / Wildlife course. I am virtually a beginner and did feel slightly apprehensive. With in 5 mins of being in Cates company I was completely at ease. It was a great 2 days and I achieved so much more than I had expected. This was just what I needed to springboard me forward into Pastel painting. Highly recommend this course, and Cate as a tutor. My 2 days were complete with a stay at Home Farm B&B at Beachampton, which is just a mile or so along from Cates studio. Again recommended as a place to stay.' TIM HARRIS

I run friendly workshops and weekly classes in my studio near Oxfordshire were students learn in relaxed, small groups. Improve your techniques in pastels, oils and graphite are based at my home studio set in acres of beautiful Oxfordshire countryside.

Course Testimonials

Good morning Cate
A belated thank you for the great day Anita, Janey and I had with you on Wednesday.
Clearly when Wanda was looking up at me from the door mat via Paint she knew what she was doing!
We all went home feeling we had learnt a lot, been very encouraged and had enjoyed every part of our time with you. The other person who couldn't be with us, my friend, Margaret was very keen to hear all about it and hopes to come on another day later in the summer, as I would. Another beginner day for me would be no problem!

Hi Cate,

Just to say thank you for a very informative course, we all found it very enjoyable and helpful, especially being in a small group.

It was also great to have been shown your menagerie and meet your dogs, to my mind life is no life without dogs, plus the odd husband and children thrown into the mix!

Thank you also for your hospitality, obviously most courses are held in Art centres and teaching halls, so it made for a very relaxed atmosphere, thank you.

Anita.
