Eric Ravilious has enjoyed great popularity in recent years, culminating in a recent film that has been very well received. Briefly a student of Paul Nash, his watercolour depictions of the South Downs in the 1930s are a timeless evocation of the English landscape. John Nash was also taught briefly by his brother Paul, but received no formal art education.

He painted in oils and watercolours and in many locations; Bristol, Bath, The Chilterns, Essex, The Gower. Together they capture the essence of the English countryside.

Suitable for all art enthusiasts.

Residential Fees From: £395.   Non Residential: £265

Course runs from Dinner on Friday to Lunch on Sunday.
