In the second week in April is the return of this very exciting course. Day one we have a life model who you draw with the intention of building a sculpture. Day two you build a sculpture from your drawings using papier mache and anything you can find that works. Day three you will paint from your sculptures.
Following in the tradition of learning from the great masters we are going to spend the day at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. It has a splendid and varied collection of works. You will see everything (!) in the museum and choose something that you are going to work with.
There will be drawing at the museum followed by two days at the Studio Bransbury copying the picture you chose and taking the ideas forward to create a piece that is all your own.
DRAW, DRAW, DRAW, PAINT, PAINT, PAINT
There will be a return to the regular Drawing and Painting sessions but they will be at the Studio at Bransbury, NOT at Ramshill. These will be suitable for all abilities and will be based on a changing Still Life.
Drawing will be mornings only, 10.00am – 1.00pm £40/morning
Painting will be all day, 10.00am – 4.00pm £80/day

Christmas is over. It is time for new year’s resolutions…so what are you going to choose? Are you a ‘giver-upper’? Will it be… no more chocolate – ever? Or do you try something new…a ‘taker-upper’?
Surprisingly, the beach photo from Norfolk was taken in January 2018. How about some blue sky thinking for 2019? (try not to focus on the clouds…just enjoy the possibilities)
Oil Painting for Beginners, January 2019
You will start at the very beginning, learning about the equipment, how to mix paints and what to do next. You will be looking at tone and become used to working with oils. After these three days you will be launched into the world of oil painting.
It will be in a fun and supportive atmosphere, though possibly a bit messy. Everyone is welcome.

We need the rain – the grass by the studio is still bald in places…but the wonderful September evenings have been a joy.
As autumn sets in (slightly) thoughts turn to other things. It is a time for trying something new, or returning to old pleasures. If you haven’t painted for ages, you are a bit uncertain, or you just want a fresh take on what to do next come and join this bi-weekly class.
Sewing and knitting have ‘stitch and bitch’… this is the drawing version, without the niceness.
It has become a regular fixture on alternate Thursdays. Pick morning or afternoon sessions. There is a limited amount of space so there will be a max of 7 per class.
Drawing is a skill; it requires practise, guidance and encouragement, adventure and more practise. In this class you will be taught about materials, different techniques and, very importantly, you will learn how to look.

This is a class that is appropriate for all abilities.
You may not have picked up a pencil for a long time, or you might attend a regular, weekly class. The idea of this class, and others that will follow, is to extend yourself, try something new, revisit something old and to remind yourself that drawing is exciting.
There is nothing like a wet Sunday in August to remind you that the seasons are changing, ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’ will be available in shops near you before too long, and the Autumn Term is upon us.
Below is a list of the classes currently available. Click on titles for more information. If you want to contact me please send me an email Kate Measham
I hope to squeeze in a couple more classes at some point so keep an eye out for updates.
Welcome to Hampshire Open Studios 2018! Our full colour brochure is out now and highlights more than 250 venues that you can visit across Hampshire in the ten days leading up to the August Bank Holiday weekend – 18th to 27th August.
Slightly struggling, I am putting together a list of equipment for artists to take to Casa Rosa for our week of painting in October. As I try to make a reasonable (not enormous) list of suggested colours I thought I’d look at palettes used by Spanish masters. Joachin Sorolla, a glorious artist renowned for his depiction of light was my first thought; what a distraction. Every picture is singing with life and light.
There is a major exhibition of his work coming to the National Gallery in London in spring of 2019. For more information try this link Sorolla exhibition
Apparently his plein air palette was as follows: Cobalt Violet, Rose Madder, All the Cadmium Reds, Cadmium Orange, All the Cadmium Yellows, Yellow Ochre, Chrome Green, Viridian, Prussian Blue, Cobalt Blue, French Ultramarine, Lead White
