CHARLES  MITCHELL PAINTING  TUTOR

"I enjoyed our tutor, Charles Mitchell.  He is one of the best teachers I've had and I've had over 30 experiences (demos, workshops, classes) since 2012".


"Charles was an excellent instructor. He not only helped me enormously with my understanding of how to use watercolor, but also provided insightful comments on how to develop the composition and approach the piece from a more abstract perspective - just what I was looking for".


Charles is an experienced artist and teacher who has taught in specialist art colleges and universities in the UK and overseas. He was Dean of the Faculty of the Arts and Humanities at the University of Cumbria before he moved to live in Italy seven years ago.

 

The media he uses regularly to make large pictures on paper and canvas are pastels, watercolour and acrylics and he can offer support and tuition in all these media.

 

His exhibitions have toured with the Royal Shakespeare Company and been shown in public galleries in the UK, Italy and South Africa. His regular themes include making pictures about water, landscape and people engaged in activities they enjoy.

Question:  "What can I expect from the week?"  Read Charles' reply:


"I would like you to have a thoroughly enjoyable painting holiday followed by a spectacular visit to the opera and be able to go home feeling that you have learned things that will enable you to further develop your interest and your skills in drawing and painting media.

Whether you are a beginner wishing to experiment with different media or a more experienced artist who wants to develop specific skills in your chosen medium, I’ll want to help you identify and develop your abilities in a lovely setting that provides lots of visual stimulation and that will provide plenty of opportunities to explore the representation of water, landscape, picturesque built environments, wildlife and people.

On each day in the first half of the week I’ll offer the group an introduction to different media and subject matter and then I’ll work with individuals to help you achieve an outcome that I hope will inspire you to further investigation with the media and the subject.

During the second half of the week I’ll work with individuals to help develop finished pieces that will give you the confidence to develop your painting and drawing abilities when you return home.  I look forward to getting to know you".  Charles
