Week Two Course August 5 - August 9 - 9am - 4.30pm


The Florence Academy comes to Stowe, offering a unique opportunity to study under the tutelage of the Academy’s Ambassador, Toby Wright. The classes at Stowe are designed for artists who are unable to enrol on full-time courses but are serious about improving their skills and want to obtain a high level of training in a short period of time. Instruction is in the form of individual critiques so each student receives guidance at his or her level of expertise. Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels are therefore welcome, as well as professional painters who are seeking to improve upon an already substantial skill base.

This year we are offering an intensive five or ten day course in Portraiture using the Atelier method with Toby Wright, an in-depth course studying the portrait in oil paint. This discipline requires attention to anatomy, shape design and light. We are also offering a five or ten day course in Landscape Painting en plein air with artist Amy Florence, where students will be guided through the practical concepts and artistic process of landscape art. Students can select a five day course in Portrait Painting and a five day course in Landscape Painting, or could take a ten day course in either one. Instruction is by individual critique, so students will receive guidance at their individual level of expertise.

We have ensuite accommodation available within the grounds of Stowe at £75 per night. This will include bed, breakfast and evening meal. When booking please request the number of nights required in the box, places are limited at 15 so early booking is essential.
