Colin Mason is an Artist based in Norfolk that producs art to sell, art to hire and offers painting classes based in beautiful rural Norfolk.


Let me take you into the world of Turner, Monet, Constable and of traditional and contemporary art, where colours collide and light dissolves and dances in a heady mix of turpentine, linseed oil, bright reds, cadmium yellows, phthalo blues, sap greens, palettes and brushes. Conjure up in your mind if you will, painting landscapes, seascapes, windmills beaches, big skies, all the things you would love to paint but have never had the courage to try. Well you can now.

If you believe in yourself enough to want to try, then come along and surprise yourself and produce a work of art you perhaps never thought you could. There is nothing to lose but everything to gain. 

Join Colin and absorb yourself in the world of the Artist, and enjoy a friendly, welcoming and relaxing time in an atmosphere totally conducive to exploring your creativity.

Whichever course you decide upon, all materials, equipment, refreshments (a light lunch on a full day course) are included in the course fee. The only thing you will need to bring with you is an old shirt or apron to cover your clothes.

More information about the courses is available in further detail on the course page that you select. Saturday art sessions by appointment only.

      The Florence Studio, where all courses are held, is set in landscaped gardens down a quiet lane in the tranquil village of Oxborough, Norfolk, close to the National Trust property of Oxburgh Hall.
