The Classes 

Please note that if you need to contact me in the morning before your class, an email is best, and please send before 9.00am, when I check my emails before leaving home.

I am currently running three classes at Writtle village hall:

Life Drawing class.

The next life drawing class will be Friday February 10th. The model will be Becs.

If you intend to work in charcoal, as suggested, please make sure you bring something to protect the floor. 

If any of my previously signed-up students want to join the life drawing class, please contact me. The class is currently full, but I am running a 'drop in' list of students, who I contact if any enrolled student is unable to attend a class.

Tuesday and Wednesday morning classes.

These are following my previous format, with a varied programme of short projects

Tuesday February 7th

This will be the final week of our project: Looking at the work of Shirley Trevena.

I will also be introducing the next project, which we will start after half term.

Wednesday February 8th.

This will be the final week of our project: Looking at the work of Shirley Trevena.

I will also be introducing the next project, which we will start after half term.

These are the links to the short videos about Shirley Trevena:

PLEASE NOTE that both my Tuesday and Wednesday classes will continue with all the Covid safety policies for now, ie. face coverings, ventilation, social distancing, etc., regardless of government guidelines.

In the Life Drawing class, in the larger room, face coverings will be optional, but all the other policies will remain. 

These decisions will be reviewed and changed if I feel that circumstances have changed.

I offer three email watercolour courses:

Just One Brush, More Brushes, and No Brushes.

Each course comprises 8 pdf pages, packed with information, ideas and exercises, with plentiful coloured illustrations. 

 

The courses take the student through a series of steps, exploring the handling of brushes and other implements, and the nature of the paint itself, and encouraging a deeper understanding of the medium.

The exercises allow the student to practice and experiment with different techniques and concepts,

meanwhile growing in confidence as they build their skills.

They have been very well received by my students, so I am now happy to offer them more widely. 

They are designed to be worked on in order, but in fact each one can be studied on it's own.

Please get in touch if you would like to purchase any of the three courses.

£25.00 each.
