Course Structure

The art course begins on arrival at Harrop Fold Farm, offering ‘A Quintessentially English Experience’. This theme is carried through with the homemade and home reared or locally sourced food for lunch through to the art courses. Guests arrive bringing nothing with them and leave with their own beautifully framed painting; the sense of guest’s achievement is wonderful to witness. This is a family business with husband & wife, Michael & Jackie involved on the art courses.

One Day Courses

Guests arrive at 10am and are welcomed with a selection of drinks and homemade cakes. They are introduced to the studio and having previously discussed their medium and topic are given all of their equipment.

The morning usually forms a master class of the guests ‘following’ Mike but being fully supervised and then after a delicious lunch of local and homemade/reared produce go on to finish their task.

The afternoon sees Mike teach ‘professional secrets’ which guests love! By afternoon teatime the painting is completed, this is then framed and presented to the ‘artist’ who then takes this home as a wonderful testimony to their day at Harrop Fold Farm.

During the summer, guests may enjoy painting in the farm grounds, which include a variety of locations: gardens, by the river or woodlands, hills and panoramic landscapes.

Cost: £85.00 per weekday course, £45.00 for a half day course.
