Learn to Paint at Felbrigg Lodge Hotel 29th & 30th January 2017
Enjoy a day learning traditional landscape oil painting with an experienced artist in the beautiful setting of this boutique independent hotel.
“I’ve always want to try my hand at painting” is a comment many people make at some point in their lives.
Well, now you can combine a stay at one of Norfolk’s best independent hotels and experience the pleasure and fun of painting in oils with Nial Adams, artist and oil painter.
This residential break includes a two night stay, with dinner on Sunday evening and breakfast, light lunch and dinner on Monday.
You’ll enjoy the comfort of one of Felbrigg’s unique and individual luxury lodges, set in seven acres of grounds next to the beautiful North Norfolk country estate of Felbrigg Hall.
The painting course, which lasts around six hours and has a maximum of four students, will teach you the basics of Landscape Oil Painting.
The aim being that by the end of the day you’ll have your own unique piece of artwork to take home and enjoy, new skills and great memories.
The course has been designed to be suitable for absolute beginners, or intermediate artists. So even if you’ve never picked up a brush in your life this is a great place to start.
You’ll be working with Nial inside a studio environment, rather than open air, giving you the chance to paint with close guidance and instruction, as well as express your imagination.
This also means your day is unaffected by the weather, making it a perfect break for all seasons.
All materials are supplied and you’ll get to keep your oil painting as a memory of your stay and experience.
The day is designed to teach you some core fundamentals, perhaps improve on existing skills, and above all have fun trying something new with like-minded people.
By working with a small group Nial is able to tailor the day’s tuition to the individual student’s abilities and experience. Whilst you may not expect to produce an acclaimed masterpiece, it will certainly be your masterpiece.

About The Tutor –
Nial Adams was fortunate to have exceptional start to his own study in oil painting. From the age of 10 he learned from his father, an accomplished artist, art restorer and expert in the tradition of classical oil painting.
Despite a lengthy break from art, and after following a successful career in business, Nial returned to art after the death of his father.
Today, his oil paintings, under the studio title of Big Norfolk Skies, have gained local, national and even international attention, with collectors from both the UK and overseas buying his artworks.
Nial, with a background in teaching and training has also taught art to both groups and individuals, understands the challenge and, in some cases, trepidation faced by first time painters.
Within the realistic limitations of just six hours (including breaks) even a complete novice can produce a piece of art. Nial has proved this before with students and now invites you to come and experience the same thing.
