Join Us At Gartmore House For Our Drawing Class

available dates :

January - October 2022

“I was looking for a drawing class near me that promised beautiful subjects for my art, thank goodness I found Gartmore House.”

About The Course

If you’re looking for a place where you can relax while doing something worthwhile and fun – our drawing class is here for you.


Pack up your pencils, it’s time to draw! Get settled in in one of Gartmore House’s light filled studios and brush up on key drawing skills like composition, perspective, and shading. You’ll be surrounded by like-minded people and you never know, you might just make a friend or two!

We made sure that our class is not just another drawing class and so we have the best teacher we know.
Over the course of four days, Kit will demonstrate an array of drawing techniques looking at different subjects each day to provide a productive and enjoyable experience..

Kit will assist and enable members of the class, be they beginner or more skilled, to expand and hone skills to achieve or work towards a personal goal. That could be something as basic as how to shade a 3-dimensional object or how to use white space to compose a picture. Attendees should expect to leave the four-day course with the right skills and technique to go on to continue to practice with confidence and in time be able to find your own personal drawing style.

Kit's holidays are designed to suit all levels, the course content will be varied to suit the needs of each group. Kit says "the basics do count, everyone can draw and practise does indeed make perfect".

Your Course Tutor: Kit Neufeld

Kit is a graduate of the Scottish College of Textiles specialising in knitted fabrics, and throughout her time there, she found that the use of fine art skills such as drawing and painting were vital when searching for inspiration to create. Throughout the week, Kit will assist you in the process of honing and expanding your skill set as you work towards a personal goal with the hope that when you leave you will have gained the confidence in your own drawing skill.

Using a variety of materials and techniques, Kit will guide you as you study different subjects each day allowing for a productive but enjoyable experience.

This course is suitable for all levels, whether a complete beginner ready to start something new or a skilled artist looking for new challenge.
