2016 - Sadly the Deer Park Art Courses are no longer running, due to the fact that the hotel is now specialising in high end Experience Days and weddings and functions. Feel free to contact the hotel if you would like them to re-introduce
the art tuition courses or organise a special one day experience - I am sure that they will accommodate you and they can contact me to tailor the experience to your own personal needs.
Alternatively I am now in talks with a new venue about running similar
art courses, further details to be advised, but feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss in more detail.
2014/2015 - Exciting times! I was asked to host an art party for ten people at the Deer Park Honiton last weekend. After
many sleepless nights planning the event and making sure that even the tiniest details and possibilities had been accounted for, the day arrived. Set up and ready to go in plenty of time. I provided all oil paints, brushes, palette knives, canvas, easel and
other materials, and then acted as tutor and guide to each person, so that everyone had a chance to make their own personal contribution to the painting. Even total novices were surprised at what they could produce with my guidance and instruction. It was
one of the most rewarding tuition sessions I have ever had! And inspired me to go home and get painting on my own projects at earliest opportunity.
The Deer Park is a beautiful venue, with outstanding views across the nearby countryside, and the hotel
itself has a fantastic atmosphere of comfort, relaxation and quality. The day went like a dream, with the group producing a great piece of artwork to commemorate the birthday of the very special lady who booked me. Well done all!
I am thrilled
to announce that I have now been invited to host several Art Course Days per month, from May to September inclusive! The course content will vary for every lesson. There will be courses for all abilities. Morning and afternoon refreshments, as well as a lovely
lunch will be provided and are included in the cost of the Course. The Course itself will run before and after lunch. I shall provide delegates with approximately £40 worth of complimentray goodies, to use on the day and take away with you. For bookings
please see link below for the Deer Park Hotel.
First course done at the Deer Park on Monday 2 June! What a fantastic day. additional people joined the course on the day, and fantastic artwork was produce by all! I met some truly lovely
people, one of whom said they were pressganged into doing the course by her husband, she said she was OCD and could not even draw a stick man. So I pushed her outside her comfort zone, threw away the brushes and got her to produce a fantastic seascape! Her
husband produced an amazing owl painting, and the other delegate painted a beautiful picture of galloping wild horses using palette knives. Well done all. Roll on the next course - I loved it!
September 2014 - I have now hosted several
art courses a month at the Deer Park, each and every one has been fantastic! I have met some amazing people, and managed to get every one of them to produce a great peice of artwork, even one lovely lady who said she could not even draw a stick man, and went
on to produce a fantastic seascape, without using brushes!
I am also thrilled to announce that the Deer Park have now confirmed future dates for art courses throughout the winter - thank you, Deer Park. I am so glad to continue these pleasurable
and rewarding sessions. Bookings already rolling in...
