*IF YOU BOOK DURING JUNE, I’ll REFUND you £20 as an EARLY BOOKING DISCOUNT!

THESE TAUGHT CLASSES ARE FOR ARTISTS OF ALL ABILITIES.

BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL AS PLACES ARE LIMITED

THE PAINTING CLASSES WILL BE TAUGHT USING A HARD-WON PHILOSOPHY ABOUT TEACHING ART:

“I teach a language, not just how to copy – copying is certainly a skill, but each artist needs to do something rich and rhythmic with their ability. My approach, using led exercises, ensures that both the teacher and the students are always on the edge of discovering something new. We are all in it together, for the first time. Art, like language, has a structure, a pattern, a syntax and the common strands in visual experience can be taught and learnt. It is up to the individual to use that language with the infinite variety of individual expression. This is a liberating approach: we all might not have the skills or inspiration of a great master, but everyone who really wants to draw, can begin to make a connection between their inner and outer worlds and communicate through art.”

Matisse: A new painting should be a unique thing …. the artist should call forth all of his or her energy, sincerity and the greatest possible modesty in order to push aside the old clichés that come so readily to hand

ALL MATERIALS, & TUTORING WILL BE PROVIDED, including easels, boards, paints, brushes, palettes, rags, etc., as well as an ample supply of drawing materials and papers.

All you will need to bring is a sketchbook.
