Enjoy a Norfolk Skies Painting Break, a Holiday, Demonstration
or Workshop (dates in the right-hand panel)
You’ll really enjoy one of Frank’s weekend Painting
Breaks. Frank paints for sheer enjoyment – with
a loose, bold, big brush style. He loves to be free and
unstructured, but even though he bends the rules, he is
a subtle teacher and an innovative Master. His classes
are practical, they’re fun, and with his expert
eye they guide students of all abilities to achieve memorable
are run over a weekend and are limited to just four people, to ensure that everyone
benefits from individual tuition. They are held at Frank's home studio in Cromer, a picturesque Norfolk
seaside town twenty miles from Norwich.
Whilst Frank will be your teacher and part-time entertainer, the hospitality you will enjoy is provided with an unerring sense of style by his lovely wife Carol (probably the only one who can control his exuberance!).
Painting on Location
End of day critique
You'll spend most of your time painting on location at some of the most beautiful places in the Norfolk countryside - using the studio only when the weather is bad.
And after a full day, there are many excellent local restaurants around Cromer offering a variety of culinary styles for an enjoyable dinner. We can also recommend the Grove quality B&B
for your overnightaccommodation - so you're sure to be comfortable!
partners are more than welcome as there are endless
things to do in Norwich, the Broads and the North
Spoil yourself and join Frank for a wonderful painting
break in the area made famous by Cotman,
Seago and Middleton.
Arrive on Friday evening, ready for your course to start on
Saturday morning and finishing Sunday late PM.

Weekend Painting Breaks 2018
Unfortunately, because Frank's cruising programme now takes up so much of his time, he is unable to offer a fixed programme of Painting Breaks for 2018 as in previous years.
However, you can still book a weekend break on an ad-hoc basis, as long as you can assemble a group of at least 4 people. For availability ether contact Frank direct by email
