What We Do
Bowland Atelier has been the fine art studio of professional artists Cassandra Batterby & John Rotherham since 2013. Throughout their painting careers John & Cassandra have always taught.
At Bowland Atelier we teach the art of drawing and painting from life, using traditional techniques. Our art classes are tailored to all abilities. We teach by showing, using practical demonstrations to give students as much 'hands on' experience as possible. We show you how we make mistakes, and more importantly how to correct your mistakes to create accurate, lifelike drawings and paintings. Small class sizes (maximum 5 students) enables you to receive virtually 1:1 tuition in a professional artists studio.
The materials we use are charcoal for drawing and oil paints for painting. Charcoal is a great way to make marks quickly, and is a perfect preparation for painting in oils. All materials are provided.
