Lessons with Stephen Thompson, our artist in residence

Published: 06/09/2020

Steve Thomson, our artist in residence, is available to book as an art tutor during your stay with us here at Romney Marsh Shepherds Huts.

Steve has been painting and regularly exhibiting his work both here and abroad for 40 years. He has been a teacher of art for 25 years both in Secondary and Further Education including several years as Head of Art at the prestigious English College in Prague. He has demonstrated and talked at many Art Societies over the years.

His own work employs a range of materials and approaches from en plein air, recording from direct observation to developed studio-based painting.

When teaching he fosters curiosity and creativity using practical demonstrations coupled with technical information and art historical context.

‘The area of outstanding beauty of ‘The Fifth Continent’ of Romney Marsh and the surrounding areas braced by the sea and down has long been a source of inspiration to me’. In my teaching capacity I would hope to show the fascinating, countryside and rich historical gems in the area. The experience would be of looking, exploring and responding through drawing and painting with my assistance, as a guide.

If you are keen to take this opportunity at anytime during your stay or would like further information on prices or availability please contact Stephen at; art.step71@yahoo.com
