Join us at Cowshed Creative on our Traditional Lakeland Farm for a fantastic day out painting the landscape. Enjoy the stunning views of the Kentmere Valley and capture the natural beauty of the area. Our art studio is based near Staveley between Kendal and Windermere in an amazingly tranquil spot. The workshop includes some great tuition, a stunning venue and a tasty 2 course lunch with home baked bread and cake. Tea and coffee throughout the day.
You will explore approaches to drawing and painting using a variety of mixed media using the landscape as inspiration. Create bright rich colours and make interesting marks. The day will start indoors developing skills and then we will go outdoors, weather permitting to work directly from observation in a beautiful landscape.

Karen Lester will run the sessions and is a very experienced tutor. She enjoys working with a range of painting and drawing media including printmaking, sometimes combining these to create mixed media images. Each type of medium brings its own exciting possibilities and unique qualities, something she continually explores. Her studio base is in the south Lake District, an area where she can spend time immersed in the landscape, a source of endless inspiration. Hope you can join us!
