Most of our painting courses are lead by Le 1500 owner, Michael F Rumsby who is a professional artist with an international portfolio of clients.  Michael's teaching methods have inspired many talented but unsure students to 'let go' and believe in themselves and their ability to paint expressively.  

Residential courses include full board and all art equipment.  Dates available in 2021 in June, July, August & September.  Enquiries should be sent to / tel + 33 6 70 47 45 24


Our  Expressive Painting courses focus primarily on painting practice, with the objective of encouraging an expressive style in the use of acrylic paint and mixed media on canvas, paper and other materials. 


The Courses last anything from one day to seven days, with space for up to eight students.  They focus particularly on landscape painting (in the broadest sense) but encourage other subjects to be treated and incorporated into the landscape.


Our teaching methods allow you to discover your own talent – and there are bags of it in everyone - and, above all, to enjoy the process of painting.  We encourage a relaxed and fun environment without judgement or comparison.
