available dates :

“While searching the internet for somewhere which offers drawing classes near me, I found Gartmore House and couldn’t be happier.”

About The Course

If you’re looking to make the most of your time on holiday and are searching for a way to brush up on your artistic skills, we have the perfect drawing classes for you.


It’s often said that drawing is the foundation of all art. Whether that’s true or not, the fact remains that drawing really helps to hone the skills of observation and composition and is great fun. While here, draw inspiration from the stunning Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park which surroundeds the property and delve into all things arty.

Gartmore House is not your ordinary holiday destination and we make sure to always get the best teacher for our drawing classes.
Historic Gartmore House, with its impressive entrance hall with stained glass windows, high ceilings, grand fireplaces and period features is the perfect location to enjoy a drawing holiday. Working from within one of our light-filled studios, our friendly and experienced tutor Margaret Neufeld will cover a wide range of subjects including landscape, still life, figure drawing and portraiture. Weather permitting, guests may also experience an outdoor session in the estate’s 100 acres of private land.

Throughout the week guests will experiment with a variety of tools and media such as charcoal, various types of pens and pencils as well as other ‘found’ implements to develop their confidence, ability and individual style.

Drawing holidays with Margaret Neufeld are suitable for experienced artists and beginners alike. Group sizes are small to allow Margaret to tailor tuition to your level of ability.
