WHITEHOUSE Studio Art Holidays

A Taste of Art

Five day residential art courses hosted by wallpaper designer Karen Beauchamp at her Scottish Arts and Crafts Studio.

Whether you have some experience with art or not, a new artistic adventure can contribute fresh ways of looking at the world around you, resulting in an extra dimension to your life.

Our enthusiastic professional tutors will share their knowledge and experience with you, on a one to one basis. Encouraging you to open your eyes to shape, colour, tone, composition and atmosphere. Explore different techniques and play with colour. Improve your skills working ‘en plein’ air with picnic lunches provided on location.

Situated on the west coast of Scotland with dramatic views over West Loch Tarbert, Glenreasdale House is a large light, airy and house with character, originally built in 1907 as a hunting lodge by Peter J. Mackie founder of White Horse Whiskey. - ” It is an interesting house with so much to look at “With a “living kitchen “ “ inspiring views” offering “utter peace” “ the house feels loved “ great atmosphere” “this is what a Scottish home should be “ I would not be disappointed to arrive here”

The Kintyre peninsular is secluded but not remote providing a wide variety of stunning and inspiring landscape from the rocky and rugged to soft and rolling hills. The area with its secluded secret beaches, lochs, coastal villages and dramatic glens has been a mecca for artists for centuries. Providing subject matter for the renown Glasgow groups of artists like the `Glasgow Boys’ and the Scottish Colourists and many more. Argyll is full of inspired and interesting people.

Two hours spectacular drive from Glasgow, Whitehouse is six miles south of the atmospheric fishing village of Tarbert, with its bars and restaurants. The area is renown for its seafood, local produce and whiskey.

Working in a studio with other artists, where you can leave your work on the easel, giving yourself time and space for your ideas to develop, can recharge your creativity in a supportive environment.

We have planned a varied tutorial programme of short journeys to inspiring locations, all specially chosen, never far from the sea.
