NEW Art Tutor Cruise

There are still spaces available onboard our new ‘Mull Odyssey’ cruise departing on the 28th April with art tutor Anthea Gage (with no extra cost!).

You don’t have to take advantage of Anthea’s tutoring but if you wish to do so, you will explore a wide variety of materials and techniques, from drawing with traditional media like pencils and oil pastels, to liquid watercolour painting, mixed media work and collage…all while cruising the Scottish islands!

The focus will be on developing individual skills and enjoying learning about new approaches to drawing and painting, using the sketch books to later produce a more finished and detailed work indoors.

Everyone is welcome to take part whether you are a beginner or a more experienced artist.
