Since relocating to Brittany, Mary has continued her love of teaching Art, and works from The Old Bakery Studio in the lovely setting of Chateauneuf de Faou. The Old Bakery is a character bed and breakfast where residential art courses are offered. Having had the first summer leading these courses, she has thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to teach on location in the beautiful Breton countryside, and meet a wide variety of interesting and enthusiastic people, many of whom she is still in touch with.
As well as residential holidays The Old Bakery Studio runs 1, 2 or 4 day summer workshops aimed at residents of France or those on short stays in the area. The workshops cater for all levels and will focus on specific disciplines, such as acrylic, oil and watercolour painting.
The workshops take place within The Old Bakery Studio barn alongside the residential holidays and, weather depending, may include an opportunity to paint at a local attraction. If you join the 4 day option, a visit to the local Chateau Trevarez or “Pink Chateau” is scheduled towards the end of the week. All sessions run from around 10am – to around 4pm. A light lunch is included each day as well as basic art materials
