Cold Light Falls with Anthony Garratt – 11th – 14th November

November 11 @ 9:30 am - November 14 @ 4:30 pm

Cold Light Falls with Anthony Garratt

Capture the cold crisp light and darkness in this stunning winter landscape painting course set in Dartington’s wonderful gardens.

This fabulous four-day course aims to encourage participants to experiment in a creative way in contemporary landscape painting.

Learn how to bring depth, mood, and emotion into the scene using experimental painting techniques under the tutorage from this very cool artist.

And play with colour and character in your work and discover your mark within the landscape. With practical advice and tutorials on styling and composing your paintings, if you’ve ever struggled with light and shadow, or wondered how to capture slow the low shadows of winter, this is the course for you.


On this course, lunch will be provided on Wednesday-Saturday. These communal meals are a vital part of the learning experience and we strongly recommend you attend them.

Tea and coffee will be available throughout the course.


We recommend that if possible, you stay on-site during your course. All our courses are best experienced holistically: through working, relaxing, eating and staying with other course participants and tutors.

Our beautiful rooms have all the character and personality you’d expect, but not at the expense of comfort. With easy access to our wider estate, they are the perfect place to relax and recharge.

Breakfast and dinner each day – made with fresh, locally-sourced produce by our award-winning team – are included: one less thing to worry about during your stay.
