Painting Workshops at Staithes Art School

I will be tutoring at Staithes Art School again this year and looking forward to painting in this delightful and inspiring location. 
16th to 19th May - 1 Place Available
18th to 21st July- Places Available
As in previous years, the Weekends are designed for students of all abilities, so whether you are just starting out or already a proficient painter, I will be able to help you progress.
The piercing North Sea light, towering cliffs and moody seas of Staithes have always attracted artists. The winding paths up and between picturesque cottages offer immense variety of perspective. No matter how much time you spend here you will never run out of subjects for painting
Most artists will tell you that the best way to paint in Staithes is en plein air as the Staithes Group liked to paint. But even they had to take cover from time to time. At Staithes Art School you can also make use of the original studio, recently restored and refurbished, where Staithes Group artists Laura and Harold Knight painted. We also have a large light room above Staithes Gallery where you can work indoors.
Comfortable accommodation is provided in cosy fishermen's cottages close by in the village, with breakfast in the elegant Georgian maisonette above Staithes Gallery. Dinner with wine, prepared by award-winning chef Lisa Chapman, is served each evening in the large private dining room above the gallery.

Staithes Art School is a real opportunity to put aside everyday cares and concerns and to concentrate on painting in a relaxed and friendly environment.Non-painting partners are also welcome and there are many other activities available in Staithes and the surrounding area: sailing, fishing, cycling, walking, surfing, golf - to name but a few.
If you  wish to make a booking, or have any further queries about Staithes Art School  please telephone Al Milnes on 01947 841840 or 07972012464, or email
