Back to basics and drawing and painting.
This course introduces the elements and principles of art, whilst exploring a range of materials. The course will give you the confidence to draw and paint, whether you are a beginner or need a little push to get going again. I encourage all students to take this course, even if you have had previous lessons elsewhere, just in case you missed something the first time round. However if you have had lots of experience and want to learn a new technique or need help with your own work then that's possible too.
After completing the basic drawing and painting course I offer an extension course which helps you gain confidence with your painting and really practice what you have learned. This course builds on the skills learnt during basic drawing and painting.
A more experimental course which explores line, marks, composition, shape, texture layering, image release, working in series with new approaches and techniques.
Students can pursue their own art practice in class. Learning new techniques in painting, drawing, mixed media, image transfer, print making, watercolour, acrylic and encaustic. Please contact me to discuss your expectations and desired outcome. Classes are suitable for all abilities.
Alternate times may be possible, just let me know.
Most materials are included in the class fee.
Classes are relaxed, friendly, inclusive and a little therapy is thrown in too. Adult classes follow the school term and don't take place during school holidays.
You can join the class at any time during the term.
I have been running kids holiday art workshops for many years. Each workshop has a theme which is usually a famous artist or art movement. I have covered around 60 famous artists over the years. The kids learn a little about art history and create their own art inspired by the theme artist using the techniques employed by them. The work the kids have produced has been fantastic and many of my adult students have said I wish I could do what the kids do. So now is your chance. This class will run just like the kid’s workshops. I'll introduce an artist, talk about their inspiration, motivation and working practice. You will learn how to work just like them. You will make art inspired by some the world’s most famous artists. You will learn new techniques and gain an insight into art history without the text book. You will learn a lot and have fun.
Watercolour and mindfulness
This class will be a watercolour basics course. I teach you about paper, paint, glazing, mixing, composition plus the elements and principles of art
Watercolour is an ideal medium to introduce a conscious practice of mindfulness into your creative process. Mindfulness practice and creativity are perfect partners. This course will help you find a restful space in your creativity by prompting a present approach
