Working on an individual basis, Oliver is practiced at coming alongside unique portfolio stories or bringing suggestions of how to get creative portfolios underway. There are many ways we can create, and Oliver can offer as little or as much tutored structure, as and when useful.

Oliver is ready to instruct in any of the following: doodling, sketching and drawing. Painting and 2D mixed media. Printmaking (including Etching, drypoint, monoprint, lino and woodblock printing) Basic film and animation. He has a specific portfolio of creative writing strategies. We hope to also be able to offer you the opportunity to perhaps dabble with your creative streak amongst yarns and textiles, to discover your hidden talents with the sewing machine! (For some of these activities you may want to bring your own materials).

Oliver’s studio home provides lots of additional places to relax in and places to print make.

In summer months we often eat out on the terrace or decking areas taking in the views across the bay.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px 25px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/3″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”circle” src=”https://www.oliverwestfinearts.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Stepping-Stones-side-small-square.jpg” alt=”Art holidays in cornwall” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=”” style=”height: 300px;”][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/3″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”circle” src=”https://www.oliverwestfinearts.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Mobile-studio-botalick-square.jpg” alt=”cornwall art holiday” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=”” style=”height: 300px;”][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/3″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”circle” src=”https://www.oliverwestfinearts.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Stepping-stones-looking-out-square.jpg” alt=”Cornish art holidays” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=”” style=”height: 300px;”][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ class=”cs-ta-center” style=”padding: 0px;”][x_button type=”transparent” shape=”rounded” size=”large” block=”false” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”/printmaking-cornwall/” title=”Print making cornwall” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_icon type=”info-circle” class=”mvn mln mrs”]Find out more…[/x_button][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 51%)” parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 25px 0px 45px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ class=”ptn mtn” style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” class=”mts” style=”color: hsl(0, 0%, 100%);”]Sketchbook Holidays[/x_custom_headline][cs_text]Sketchbook Holidays has been running for many years now.

When Oliver closed the studio he pursued the ideas of these holidays as a way to engage others, teach Printmaking and still be able to have the freedom to produce his own artwork.

Oliver’s friendly personality, broad skills and one-to-one attention ensure a unique experience. Oliver’s holidays are ideal for making new friendships, exploring and exchanging creative ideas and enjoying some of the most beautiful places in the world. These tailor made holidays are an ideal opportunity to be both relaxed, explore the landscape whilst filling a sketchbook diary, or as the basis for a themed arts project.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px 25px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/4″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”circle” src=”https://www.oliverwestfinearts.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/venice1-square.jpg” alt=”Sketchbooking holidays abroad” link=”true” href=”sketchbooking/” title=”Sketchbooking in Venice” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][cs_text class=”cs-ta-center” style=”color:#6e6e6e;font-size:18px;”]Venice[/cs_text][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/4″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”circle” src=”https://www.oliverwestfinearts.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/alps1-square.jpg” alt=”Sketchbooking holidays abroad” link=”true” href=”sketchbooking/” title=”Sketchbooking in the Alps” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][cs_text class=”cs-ta-center” style=”color:#6e6e6e;font-size:18px;”]Alps[/cs_text][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/4″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”circle” src=”https://www.oliverwestfinearts.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/turkey11-square.jpg” alt=”Sketchbooking holidays abroad” link=”true” href=”sketchbooking/” title=”Sketchbooking in Turkey” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][cs_text class=”cs-ta-center” style=”color:#6e6e6e;font-size:18px;”]Turkey[/cs_text][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/4″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”circle” src=”https://www.oliverwestfinearts.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/south_africa1-square.jpg” alt=”Sketchbooking holidays abroad” link=”true” href=”sketchbooking/” title=”Sketchbooking in South Africa” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][cs_text class=”cs-ta-center” style=”color:#6e6e6e;font-size:18px;”]South Africa[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ class=”cs-ta-center” style=”padding: 0px;”][x_button type=”transparent” shape=”rounded” size=”large” block=”false” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”/sketchbooking/” title=”sketchbooking cornwall” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_icon type=”info-circle” class=”mvn mln mrs”]Find out more…[/x_button][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
