Painting Course with Jessica Cooper Cornwall


An inspiring two day course taught by renowned painter Jessica Cooper which encourages observation and a paring down of visual information. Jessica will encourage students to look closely at relationships of line, shape and colour within the beautiful flowers, fruit, earthenware jugs and other still life objects displayed on the farmhouse table in the school studio during the course. This course offers students of all levels of experience a wonderful opportunity to learn to see subjects with a fresh pair of eyes. 

Includes a visit to Jessica Cooper's studio in the building.

All drawing materials, supports and paint will be supplied by the art school.


Jessica Cooper is also a Tutor on the One Year Mentoring Course at Newlyn School of Art.

Great; so valuable to have the tutor explain how they approach their work with practical demonstrations and a studio visit. The work I have done on this course has helped me understand and be more confident with the fundamentals of composition.
