In the unlikely event of it being necessary to cancel a class, I will post a message here, and will make every effort to phone all the students concerned. I would hope to make the decision by 9.00am for the morning classes, and by 12.30pm for the afternoon classes.

If you need to contact me on the day, regarding a class, please email before 9.00am or phone before 9.15am, or between 12.15 and 12.30pm.

The classes

Watercolour Painting. Tuesday morning. November 26th.

Please bring flowers or a plant or similar, if you can.

You will need the following watercolour equipment :
Paints; brushes; watercolour paper, preferably A3 size; water pot; kitchen towel; a board to lean on (unless the back of your watercolour pad is very stiff); a desk easel or something to prop up your board with.

Tuesday Afternoon Class. November 26th.

We will be starting the'Looking at the Work of Shirley Trevina' project. You will need watercolours for this. Please try to bring a photograph of a still life, preferably including flowers, to work from for this first week. We will work from life in subsequent classes.

The 12 week Autumn term will be divided into four projects. They will be: Looking at the Work of Van Gogh; Mixed media; Movement; Looking at the work of Shirley Trevina.

Life Drawing Class. Wednesday morning. November 20th.

The model will be Keith.

If at all possible, please let me know beforehand if you will not be attending a class.

Students may use any medium of their choice, excepting oils, (water mixable oils are acceptable). You are welcome to bring a sketching easel, otherwise you can rest your work on a chair back.

Thursday Morning Class. November 21st.

We will complete the 'Painting and Drawing without Brushes' project.

Please bring your paints (watercolour and/or acrylics) inks if you have any, and any implements you can think of to use to make marks. Some suggestions: Palette knives, sticks, sponges, rollers, combs etc. - things which be used to make marks and texture or spread paint in interesting ways. 

You can bring a brush to work your watercolour pans, if you are bringing a watercolour paint box, but you will not be using it to apply the paint. Watercolour and/or acrylic paper will be needed.

The 12 week Autumn term will be divided into four projects, which will be: Flowers - looking at the work of various artists; Looking at the work of Van Gogh; Painting and drawing without brushes; Abstract.

Thursday Afternoon Class. November 21st.

This will be the second and final week of the 'Painting and Drawing without Brushes' project.

Please bring your paints (watercolour and/or acrylics) inks if you have any, and any implements you can think of to use to make marks. Some suggestions: Palette knives, sticks, sponges, rollers, combs etc. - things which be used to make marks and texture or spread paint in interesting ways. 

You can bring a brush to work your watercolour pans, if you are bringing a watercolour paint box, but you will not be using it to apply the paint. Watercolour and/or acrylic paper will be needed.

You can bring one or more pictures to work from this week.

The 12 week Autumn term will be divided into four projects, which will be: Movement; Composition; Painting and drawing without brushes; Portrait.
Because of the problems we have using the one sink for washing up mugs and water pots and palettes all at the same time, it would be a good idea if students could please bring their own mug which they can take home to wash. There will still be plenty of mugs in the cupboard if anyone forgets.
