This is the last week of this terms long courses. The students have made real progress and created some wonderful work!
If you are looking for a new art course starting in September then take a look in the courses section of the site.
Here is just one example of the inspirational courses on offer:
To build an artists confidence with handling paint they will often push themselves to paint with larger brushes than they would normally feel comfortable using. As they explore using bolder, larger brush strokes the stylistic feel of their art changes and they begin to see how to simplify and unify sections of a image with daring large brush strokes. This course guides students through this process to help them to paint with more daring and greater confidence.
Why not start your own Jason Skill art collection. I have started to feature specific works of art for sale in the shop section of the site, where I also discuss my thinking behind the work.
See some of my new work at Bywell Arts Festival this weekend.

I am running a four week drawing course starting on the 30th of April in Jesmond on a Tuesday afternoon. This course aims to help both beginners and those with a little experience of drawing push their drawing skills forward through a deeper understanding of the techniques, value and uses of cross hatching. So why not work on your drawing for a few weeks. It can only increase your skills and dexterity as an artist.
Here is a selection of the work produced by my talented learners at Higham Hall, just before Christmas. I was delighted with their progress and ability to adapt to methods that were quite new to them for painting seas, beaches and mountains.
I am running a similar course in June 2019 at Higham Hall. Look at their website for further details.
Two new courses are on offer where Jason shows you how to paint in the style of Monet and Sargent. Here are some examples of students work created on the Van Gogh course I ran before Christmas. Perhaps these will inspire you to pick up a brush and try your hand at painting in the style of Monet or Sargent with Jasons help and guidance.
We are in the process of organising a sketching holiday to Sicily – Ragusa + Modica, in 2019.
One of the UNESCO listed Baroque towns of south – eastern Sicily, Ragusa is also the principal filming location for the Sicilian detective drama ”Inspector Montalbano’, a TV series that has done wonders for publicising the beauty of this area.
