Landscape as Power and Emotion

Art Classes with James Tatum

I am running a series of art classes throughout 2023 and 2024. In teaching landscape painting, I am interested in removing artist’s inhibitions about risk taking in order to make dynamic and physically exciting paintings. My teaching is all
about finding the expressive artist within you by experimenting with new ideas
and processes. In the end, it is about finding that fine balance between what you see and what you feel.

Also, if you have a group of 5 or more, please contact me to see if we can arrange a special group workshop.

Private tuition available in my studio in Exeter.
Contact James for details.
