Art Draw Paint, an introduction to different methods and media


Don’t get stuck doing the same thing time and time again.

Do you remember the pleasure of cutting and sticking, snowflakes made out of newspaper, papier mache masks, wax crayons stacked up layer upon layer, doodling, squashing paint between bits of paper to make strange shapes? All these wonderful physical and visual pleasures that we rarely indulge in as adults. Art Draw Paint hopes to capture that pleasure and excitement, and to encourage method and rigour at the same time.

experiment, explore, discover, play and enjoy

This course, starting at the end of September, will introduce you to  tone, mark making, the importance of line, composition and colour using pencil, graphite, ink, charcoal, a bit of printmaking, mixed media, watercolour, gouache, felt tips,coloured crayons, dye paints, acrylic, and anything else that comes up.


Monday mornings 9.30am – 1.00pm

Starting Monday, 28th September 2015, and each monday until 14th December, except 2nd and 9th November for half term.

10 weeks of classes – £325, or half a term at £180


It will be a busy term learning new techniques and re-visiting methods you may not have used for some time.

This course would be suitable for beginners, the rusty, or those of you who want to try something different with their art.

You will cover the basics and a lot more. At the end of the term you should feel confident enough to have a go at anything, and want to do more.  I will provide some of the materials needed, and ask you to get some things for yourself. I will suggest homework for anyone that wishes to do it.
