Painting Workshops With Lesley Seeger


I love teaching painting workshops to people with all levels of experience. It's particularly magical how complete beginners manage to find their creative voices and produce work which surprises in its quality. Also great to see how more experienced artists make their own personal leaps and further develop their style, often becoming more expansive and experimental.

On all my workshops, we consider composition, tone, colour and explore a range of painterly techniques including layering, washes, printing and scratching out. We also look at how different brushes can be used to make different types of mark making.

Workshops are usually held in the outstandingly beautiful village of Hutton's Ambo near Malton as well as other beauty spots such as Helmsley Walled Gardens in Helmsley and The Yorkshire Arboretum near Castle Howard.

“What a wonderful day on Wednesday! I realised in the evening I felt happier and more relaxed than I had been all year! The sunshine and the landscape and the gorgeous food helped. But above all working alongside other artists with a sensitive tutor instead of doing my time in solitary - trying something new. Those first little sketches gave me more pleasure than anything I had laboured over. I will get out more and be braver working in the open.”

“I had a fabulous day yesterday. It was a very relaxing and welcoming day and a real pleasure to have the opportunity to see your personal studio. Thank you for being so generous with your time and techniques and for demonstrating your experimental approach to painting which was so refreshing, liberating and fun.”
