Children’s Seascape Painting
This can be as basic or elaborate as you want it to be. Depending on the ages involved, this is a quick workshop to introduce some painting skills aimed at capturing sights, sounds, smells and of course the colours found by the sea in Cornwall.
With extra time we can explore the techniques of layering and multimedia applications used to capture landscapes with all the feel of the day, so that returning home you have a painting that tells more than meets the eye! Suitable for 3yrs and upward – adults welcome too!
1.5-hour activities are £20 per person (materials are charged at £1 per image – payable on the day). This workshop needs a minimum of 3 bookings to run. You are welcome to bring your own materials if preferred.

For over two decades Oliver has been running fun arts activity days for groups of all ages. Working with many organizations such as The National Trust and English Heritage, he has grown a large portfolio of fun arts activities for all members of a family to enjoy inside or out in the open air.
Based by the sea in the wilds of West Cornwall and just a few minutes from the beach, Stepping Stones in Marazion, Mounts Bay, provides a comfortable venue. If the weather takes a turn for the worse, His various studio environments enable the workshops to run rain or shine!
Seascape painting is something that Oliver wants to share as it’s close to his heart – and what he does. It’s where he finds his creativity. He likes to talk about the changing light on the sea. The aim of the workshop is to show how quickly subjects like cloud and water ( which are often quite difficult to do) can be made easier, by literally doing it on the spot.
