2021 Missenden Summer School

Having recently returned from teaching a 3 day workshop on Chinese Brush Painting for Missenden School of Creative Arts I must confess to buzzing with ideas!

For so many years I had heard about Missenden Abbey and the creative courses that went on there. However, it was an unexpected pleasure when we were approached to teach at such an auspicious venue:

Nestled in beautiful countryside, Missenden Abbey is at Great Missenden, a large village in the Misbourne Valley in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire.

Will and Alison, the tutor organisers, made my students and I very welcome and could not do enough to make sure that everyone was happy and had all the necessary equipment and facilities.

We had an enjoyable time looking at Fish, Bamboo, Wild Iris and Rocks along with Willow and Pine Trees. There were fabulous paintings produced and the level of concentration was palpable as you can see here:

If nothing else, it was to great to be back teaching ‘in person’. I have really missed this and cannot wait for the next teaching opportunity.

Thank you to all my wonderful students for coming with me, for all the help that Will and Alison gave and for the facilities offered by the team at Missenden Abbey.

I very much look forward to seeing what paintings are produced after this course…

Further updates will be shown on our Missenden Abbey course site.

Happy Painting,
