Autumn Drawing and Painting Courses


Drawing, Drawing, Drawing

Sept 20th, Oct 18th, Nov 1st, 15th, 29th

£30 for half a day (£135/5)

Ramshill, Easton Common Hill, East Winterslow

10am – 1.00pm, or 2.00pm – 5.00 pm

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.

Sept 27th, October 25th, November 8th, 22nd, December 6th

£60 for whole day (£275 for 5)

Ramshill, Easton Common Hill, East Winterslow

10am – 4.00 pm

This will be a relaxed day with a different theme to each class including mark making,  cloth, glass, reflective surfaces, shape and tone – normal stuff.  You can work in any media.

The guiding ethos will be about making your work exciting, and interesting.

It hope this will become a regular fixture on  alternate Thursdays.  They will be full day  sessions. There is a limited amount of space so there will be a max of 6 per class.

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.

Well done

 

 

Summer Art Classes


Open Drawing and Painting Classes at Ramshill, East Winterslow

All Thursdays:

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.

Life Drawing


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.
