The School of Education and Lifelong Learning At Gliffaes

A Collaboration Between Aberyswyth University And Gliffaes Country House Hotel

The School of Education and Lifelong Learning, Aberystwyth University is delighted to collaborate with Gliffaes Country Hotel in delivering a two day art course using the beautiful grounds and surroundings of Gliffaes.

Who will be teaching?

Your tutor will be Tessa Waite who a highly regarded Lifelong Learning tutor, with a great deal of experience of teaching on location.

What will I be taught?

This is a 5 credit course which is always taught on location. Accredited at Higher Education Level One, it is tailored for all adults.  The beauty of our art courses is that they are kept at small numbers so that you get individual attention tailored to your needs.
You will learn how to hone your compositional skills, look at line, tone and form and make a personal response to the gardens of Gliffaes. The ethos of the course is to work ‘en plein air’ with guidance from your tutor.

What do I need to bring?

The course fee covers access to the grounds, lunch and a sketchbook. You will need to provide something to sit on, a sketchbook, paints and a water pot.

What if the weather is not good?

If necessary, we have an option to retreat indoors at the venue.

What does the course cost?

The course costs just £70 for the two days, which includes a light lunch on both days.

Food and Accommodation

Lunch (soup and homemade roll) will be included in the cost of your course. Gliffaes are offering a special deal for dinner, bed and breakfast of £130 in a single room for the evening of 25th April (or £115 in a shared room). You don’t have to stay at the hotel to come on the course.
