Paint Fit - Autumn Studio Retreat 2023
Online Course Time: Oct 30th - Nov 3rd & Nov 6th - Nov 10th 2023 (Monday - Friday) 10am - 11.15 am each day. This course has been very successful and popular with artists over the last 2 years. Many have found it incredibly helpful and informative for their practise. It is all about motivating artists to get working in their studio every day, for 10 days. With daily input from Emily as your Paint Fit Trainer, the course will encourage you to make a positive commitment to your practice and instil a daily work ethic that will become an essential part of your painting routine.
Emily will give you the tools and courage to find a way forward and make your work more expressive. It can be tough to keep going on your own and it is easy to sometimes feel despondent, so working as a group can help us keep our courage up. There is no individual feedback given by Emily during these sessions but there will be break out rooms for discussion on 4 afternoons during the 2 week course to give the opportunity to meet the other students and also share thoughts and inspiration. There will also be a private Facebook group that you can join to share and discuss your work each day. Emily is part of this group and will also offer comment and suggestions if you are stuck. By the end of the 2 weeks you will have made a lot of work, got into a routine of being in your space and also be armed with some processes and strategies for continuing forward. Emily does not provide the subject matter: you will have this already. So, to get the most out of this course, it is essential that you have lots of studies and perhaps paintings that are already in progress to build and improvise from.
Emily is also happy to give you a tutorial online a few weeks before the course to help you prepare enough studies and feel engaged with your subject. Some students also find it helpful to have a tutorial after the Paint Fit course to review progress and plan the next steps forward. A one hour tutorial costs £70 and half an hour is just £35.

"I’m blown away by the course. I just want to bottle up this feeling and be able to harness it everyday. It feels like Emily has led me to a really exciting point, and I can’t wait to see where it goes!"
The focus, the enthusiasm and the push, with a new inspiring task each day gave the course momentum. I found that through the paint fit, I was able to get to know my subject matter much better and unravel some of what it means to me. This wouldn’t have happened without your excellent teaching.
