The first Scenic Painters Course was launched in 2009. For the first few years we offered a single two week course each summer. In 2014 we started a program of weekend courses which run throughout the year and have now been expanded to cover five subject areas. In 2017 we relaunched the two week course and and in 2018 we introduced a five week intensive course covering all aspects of scenic painting and scenic art and added a couple of oneway courses into the mix. In 2019 we added a second two week course focusing just on scenic decorating and finishes.

The modular approach to our courses means that students can decide to study at weekends or over a longer period of time, maybe taking a week off work to add a cloth painting workshop, or to invest in an intensive five week period of study.
