Autumn Art Classes

It’s that time of year again, when the Summer is waning and the nights are just starting to draw in and the Paint Brushes are getting fidgety.   So this is where I come in to rescue those neglected brushes and equipment that has lain idle for several months and encourage them to get busy.

Experimental Art with Watercolour, Acrylics, Pencils, Pens & Pastels.

This will be a structured class suitable for Beginners and Improvers, (materials will not be included but I do have some spare materials that can be used until you purchase your own).

The course will be about experimenting with different materials and combinations of and trying something that perhaps you have not tried out before with different subject matters, tuition will be given throughout with demonstrations.   I like my classes to be about learning as well as enjoyment and about making friends with like-minded people.  The class schedule will develop once I get a better idea of who would like to join, it will be centred around the needs of each Learner.
