The Forest of Dean is truly a painters paradise. With some of the country's most spectacular viewpoints, woodland scenery and seasonal variety, there should be no shortage of inspiration. Detailed below are a number of residential courses, creative breaks and one day workshops for beginners and improvers in painting and drawing.
Mariana Robinson is a highly experienced watercolour artist. She does not only teach you how to paint but also explains the use of colours, brush strokes and techniques to improve your painting skills. The courses are suitable for all levels of painters, including beginners. The courses take place in the Wye Valley where there is plenty to see and do. You can come alone, with a friend or a non painting partner.

St. Mary the Virgin church stands 650 feet above the River Wye giving panoramic views over the valley, and can be seen from Bigsweir, as well as parts of the hillside on the other side of the valley, in Wales. It is probable that there has been a place of worhip on this site since the 5th century, but it was the Normans who built the first stone church here, using local Forest stone, in about 1086.
In the Lady Chapel there is an Easter Tomb with a decorated slab of Forest stone, which was made for the tomb of Robert Abbot of Lire in France, who died in St. Briavels in 1272. The recumbent figures at the west end of the south aisle are of William Warren and his family and are from a large tomb which had stood in the north wall of the chancel until 1860. The choir stalls were made in 1950 in oak by local craftsmen and here you will find the Priest's Stall with the arms of the Dean and the Chapter of Hereford and you will also see the Hunters Horn, which is the badge of the Constable of the Forest. The Norman font has a stone frill which is thought to be unique.Deprecated: mysql_escape_string(): This function is deprecated; use mysql_real_escape_string() instead. in /var/www/vhosts/fweb.org.uk/httpdocs/classes_system/generaldata.class.inc on line 613
