Rose in Vale Country House Hotel, Cornwall


Painting Break with Paul Nicholls 2014
We are delighted that Mithian artist Paul Nicholls will be hosting a five night Painting Break at Rose in Vale in 2014, from Sunday 28th September.
Paul studied at Epsom, Portsmouth and Brighton Colleges of Art, and was a Teacher and Head Teacher in Cornwall for 34 years before painting full time from 2006. Based in Mithian, he makes driftwood constructions and paints a wide variety of subjects, often with an affinity toward the sea, figures and landscapes. He is represented by the Lander Gallery, Truro and has been a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists since 1973. His work is in the public collection of the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro.
Paul was a prize winner in an international competition sponsored by the Arts Council and the Barclays Premiership in 2007. Recently he has had exhibitions in Exeter; Plough Arts Centre, Torrington; Highwayman's Gallery, Bury St Edmunds and Falmouth Art Gallery. He holds an annual exhibition here in Mithian at the beginning of June. His sculpture is on display at the Olympic Sailing Centre in Weymouth.
The Painting Break will consist of a series of workshops at various locations around Cornwall, including a day painting at Falmouth Art Gallery. There is even a cartoon workshop included!
The Painting Break runs for five nights, staying at the Rose in Vale Hotel, and will include breakfast and dinner on each day, with personal tuition from Paul.
Paul says he is looking forward with great enthusiasm to running the Painting Break for Rose in Vale. His knowledge of local subjects and his interest in different techniques, plus his passion for individual development will make this experience useful for the self-development of the participants. "It will never be just a 'copy me' exercise. I want to nurture individual talent and develop confidence to take away lasting memories of a very special time in this part of Cornwall".
Price includes: Personal daily tuition, welcome drinks reception, dinner, bed and breakfast for 5 nights and VAT. Price does not include: Transport to Painting Venue. Guests are required to arrange their own transport in their own vehicles please, with car share on location a popular option. Call our friendly booking team for more information.
