Learn to paint in your chosen medium in small groups with a professional teacher. Graham has led classes for over twenty years together with concentrated weeks in adult education centres, such as Higham Hall, Cumbria. He is a regular demonstrator to art societies in the South of England.

A series of exercises in watercolour has been developed covering all the basic techniques.These are particularly suitable for beginners.

Classes are held during term time on Thursday mornings from 10.30 to 12.30 am at Coombe Bissett Village Hall. The fee is £11.00 per session in groups of approximately seven sessions.

Graham Oliver

"Graham Oliver has taught a number of residential art courses here at Higham Hall College. His students always speak highly of his ability as a teacher and expect to make real progress on his courses, which are demanding on ideas and skills. His courses here have concentrated on developing the use of pastels as a painting medium, a tradition established at Higham by Christopher Assheton-Stones. I hope Graham will continue to offer at least two residential courses a year for us and can highly recommend him as both teacher and artist."
