17th May, 2018: Drawing, Drawing, Drawing
Drawing classes go from strength to strength. Whatever monstrous Still Life is offered to the classes EVERYONE steps up to the mark. Very good work yesterday.
Sadly, I forgot to take photos of the afternoon’s class (apologies)…every bit as varied, and every bit as interesting.
Open Drawing and Painting Classes at Ramshill, East Winterslow
June 14, 21, 28
July 5, 12
August 2,9,16,23, and 30
Everyone has complicated commitments over the summer months; Drawing and Painting classes don’t always find a place on ‘to do’ lists.
This summer I plan to hold an open regular class on Thursdays. It will be quite casual with drawing, painting and general free for all encouraged.
There won’t be separate afternoon sessions – you buy a day and turn up anytime between 10.00 and closing time at 16.00. If you opt for all 10 sessions it will be £350 for the summer. If you opt for individual days, which you need to specify, it will be £50/day. Priority will be given to those that book for the full summer.
FIRST COME FIRST SERVE
I will provide coffee, tea and biscuits as usual, advice to those that want it, drawing exercises at 10.00, and a general theme/plan for the day.

Last Saturday was the first of the spring Life Drawing classes.
The class started the day with yoga, and finished with the yoga teacher as the model for their drawings. The emphasis of the day was to experience the physicality of drawing, and to recognise yourself in the model. This was a new experience for everyone and produced some very interesting drawings.
The next class, 9th May, will be a totally different approach. Measured life drawing is about carefully plotting the body in front of you.
There are still a few places. Contact me, Kate Measham for more information. Life Drawing, Three Ways, Retreat gives you information about all three upcoming life classes.
A River Workshop at Riverside Cottage,
Bransbury, Barton Stacey, Winchester SO21 3QJ
Tuesday 12th June 2018
10.00am – 5.00pm
£95/day to include lunch, coffee and tea
This workshop is appropriate for all abilities.
What could be more lovely than to sit by a river, painting and drawing? Rivers are moving and changing all the time so what could be more frustrating? Learn through experiments and new techniques how to find your own approach to capturing a river, and how to overcome these frustrations.
The beautiful chalk stream that runs through the villages of Barton Stacey and Newton Stacey is the River Dever. Its glories inspire fishermen, poets and artists alike. The Riverside Cottage studio is set amongst trees by the river and will be our base for the day’s workshop.
You will spend a morning by the river exploring different drawing techniques. To help capture an image you will be looking at Van Gogh’s mark making and experimenting with marks of your own. Working in charcoal, pencil, ink and graphite you will try to capture something of the magic of the river and its environment.
After a delicious lunch in the Riverside Cottage you will use the morning’s drawings to work towards a painting.
