Classes Dates & Times

Your first class with me (watercolour/acrylic lessons only) is a 'FREE, no obligation' taster session (a complete lesson). Come along and see what you think, if you like the session you can enrol, but if my classes are not for you then there is no pressure to continue. You can join at any point in the year. I pride myself on teaching technique so you can paint outside the classes, I teach colour theory, perspective, drawing skills and brush work skills plus all the techniques you will need to paint on your own in a relaxed, informative, friendly way with No paperwork, no assessments. Payment for classes is at the beginning of each term, I ask for the whole term's payment but if you have a holiday planned then the class that you will miss is deducted from the total amount payable.



Occasional Workshops run between my regular classes - 10am to 3pm in the Activity Room: Complete beginner to intermediate, step by step project - complete a painting in a day and learn how to paint too. Materials can be supplied. £35 per day, own lunch, hot drinks and biscuits included.


Mondays ALL MEDIUM CLASS, 1.30pm to 3.30pm (Activity Room or Room 1 when ready), some basic knowledge required of you medium ie watercolour, acrylic, coloured pencil, pen, pastel, drawing, etc (no oils).
