The Havens Art School: course format

Careful thought has gone into the courses at The Havens Art School. As a result, this ensures that participants have an enjoyable, invigorating and educational time. In the main, courses feature seascapes, landscapes, abstracts and Pembrokeshire places.

Following a demonstration of techniques, we’ll start to ‘build’ your art. We begin with handy tips for painting sky, and sea or simple land techniques. You will find that your use of colour, observation of light, depth and perspective will develop along with your brush technique as you create your art.

From initial sketch beginnings, we will work our way towards a finished piece, together. In fact, courses are suitable for all levels of experience
