About Freedom in Painting

Find your freedom - painting courses in Cornwall and Kent.

The concept of ‘Freedom in Painting’ is that as artists, rather than being in awe of the subject, to move our practice forward, we need to invent, challenge and surprise ourselves and transform the subject into something that is ours, utilizing all our knowledge and skills in the pursuit of an idea.

The unspoilt fishing-village of Porthleven, with its' iconic clock- tower and unique double-harbour, is the setting and inspiration for this 6-day painting course. Our studio is the Old Lifeboat House, dramatically positioned at the head of the harbour. Uniquely on our courses, artists will be working towards a one-day exhibition on the Thursday, 11th October. This is an opportunity for the more experienced artist to work in a small group – maximum seven - in a wonderful location that has inspired many of Ashley's own paintings.
