Radcliffe Camera,
Magdalen College,
Punting on the Cherwell

Painting 'en plein air'
 with Roger Dellar

Oxford has been a seat of learning excellence for hundreds of years; its magnificent architecture and vibrant atmosphere reawakens the senses and stirs the imagination…….

This is a unique opportunity to enjoy expert tuition in the media of your choice from one of the UK’s leading art tutors. As part of a small group, with regular tutor guidance from Roger, you will be painting in the quiet surroundings of Magdalen College, amidst the dreaming spires of Oxford, and the historic Cotswold market town of Burford.

Staying at Magdalen College you will enjoy unrestricted access to the college grounds which are packed with inspiration and extend to 100 acres including private quads with immaculate lawns, beautiful herbaceous borders, a circular riverside walk and a deer park – the Cherwell meanders through the college grounds and the Old Kitchen Bar terrace overlooks Magdalen Bridge where tourists enjoy a leisurely hour or two messing about on the river. This truly is a tranquil place of astonishing beauty in the very heart of Oxford.

The week will include plenty of tutor demonstrations, group tuition and one to one guidance in your chosen medium  –  be it acrylic, oil,  watercolour, pastel or gouache.  Group demonstrations will be in oil.

Our accommodation has been arranged on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis in the recently refurbished Grove Building. The study bedrooms offer a good standard of en-suite accommodation including tea and coffee making facilities. Both breakfast and dinner are assisted buffet style and taken in the splendour of the mediaeval Grand Hall.

The course fee includes:

  • Four nights half board accommodation
  • Private 'full day' coach excursion to Burford
  • Painting tuition from Roger Dellar throughout

You will love this Painting Course if you enjoy:

  • Learning in a relaxed, holiday environment
  • Expert guidance in any media from a leading, professional artist and tutor
  • Improving your skills and socialising in the company of a likeminded group
