Advent Calendar for Arty Stuff


Advent calendar fox

Christmas is a magical time of year. It is a slow moving, often supine, spend-time, make-time, time of year. Frost, snow, dark evenings, warm fires and a gathering together of friends and loved ones – occasionally overlapping. A good time, a time for reflection, a time to party, ….and it is just around the corner.

However, it can seem to be something of a burden – too many presents, too much food and so little time. Have a look at our advent calendar for arty stuff; ideas – what to ask for, and what to give. Many of the items barely need wrapping.

Sunday 1st December

  • Q: What do you call a snowman with a six pack?
  • A: An abdominal snowman

The Old Holland Oil Paint Colour Chart

Find out the favourite colour paint of the person who is to receive the gift and give them the best quality version you can afford.

My current favourite is Old Holland Indian Yellow Orange Lake Extra. Even the name sounds exotic. Apparently the original pigment was made from dried cattle urine.

Or a set of Michael Harding Paints.


Monday 2nd December

  • Q. What’s Father Christmas’ favorite measurement in the metric system?
  • A. The Santameter!

I love choosing books for people, and receiving them. A charity shop discovery is always interesting. Often these are books that are out of print or pre-loved (a bit worn at the edges, or written in etc). If you don’t have time to search but are not sure what to buy a couple of suggestions:

  • The Secret Lives of Colour:  Hardcover – Illustrated, 20 Oct 2016, by Kassia St Clair  (Author)
  • Joan Eardley: A Sense of Place Hardcover – Illustrated, 8 Oct 2018, by Patrick Elliott (Author), Anne Galastro (Author)
  • The National Gallery Hardcover – 22 Oct 2019, by Gabriele Finaldi (Author)
  • Modernists & Mavericks: Bacon, Freud, Hockney and the London Painters, by Martin Gayford 
  • Great Women Artists by Phaidon Editors

There have been a number of good exhibitions this year – The galleries concerned will have produced a glossy book to go with them. They are always a good gift.


Tuesday 3rd December

  • Q. How much money does a pirate pay for corn?
  • A. A buccaneer.

I have a wonderful easel that I was given as a Christmas present many years ago. A vital piece of kit.

This easel from CASS art is on the cheaper end of the studio easels but sturdy.


Wednesday 4th December

Thelma, a farmers wife, prayed to the Lord and asked him, “How old will I be when I die?”

His reply was 96 years old.

Thelma said, “Hot diggity dog, I will have myself fixed up.”

The farmer’s wife had everything lifted and tucked and was in the doctor’s office, making the last payment on her reconstruction. She walked out of the doctor’s office, started across the street, and was hit and killed.

She gets to heaven and asks the Lord, “What happened? You told me that I would live to be 96.”

His reply: “We’ll I just didn’t recognize you!”


Indian ink drawing

Van Gogh used indian ink and dipping pens, or hand made wooden pens.

Daler-Rowney Kandahar Drawing Ink Black is an Indian ink, ideal for illustration and design and for work in conjunction with watercolours.

Flowing easily, and producing a brilliant, rich black, it is lightfast, so will not fade, but unlike other drawing inks is not waterproof when dry.

Get in touch with your inner Van Gogh


Thursday 5th December

  • Q. Why do the French like to eat snails so much?
  • A. They can’t stand fast food

Oil sticks have been around for a while but few look quite as tasty as the Sennelier selections.

They are packaged as gifts in two sizes: one in a luxurious, sweetshop/rainbow combo box of very many colours, the other a more modest introduction set.

who wouldn’t want to find a set of these under the Christmas tree?

Friday 6th December

Why did the physics teacher break up with the biology teacher? There was no chemistry.


the BEST crisps ever

In the mix of Christmas food, drink, and general presents I would like a bumper tin of delicious Spanish ready salted crisps. They stay fresh and crispy for longer than your average crisp – I have to take that on trust…they are so delicious that they disappear as soon as the pack is opened.

Saturday 7th December

A man walked into a bar – bang


Acrylics are endlessly adaptable. There are acrylic inks, thick paints, thin paints, fabric paints, pens…you name it, its covered. There are mediums to add to make the paint behave differently and to make the colours behave differently.

We have a talented new tutor, Eve Dawson, who can walk you through all these exciting variations so you can get the best from your materials. She is doing a one day workshop, A Step Towards Abstract Expressionism to start you on your way with both abstract painting and acrylics. It should be very exciting. No experience of either is necessary.



Sunday 8th December

Whenever I’m sad I just read my blood donor ID. It always says “B
positive”.


As a child I was given a set of Caran d’ache pencils in a tin.


Monday 9th December

  • I’ve been really depressed lately. A friend told me I should go to the petting zoo perhaps, to cheer up. 
  • I went today, but not one person would stroke me.

I love to draw and get great pleasure from seeking out unusual materials. Artgraf is a brand that always satisfies. They have mastered anything to do with graphite, and coloured graphite.


Here are a few examples: Black Carbon (SO black), grey and white trio, tailors chalk shaped coloured graphite.

Tuesday 10th December

Two clairvoyants meet. One says to the other: “You are fine, and how am I?


You can’t have too many sketchbooks.

I think Seawhite are the best for me and I like square sketchpads: SEAWHITE SQUARE & CHUNKY SKETCHBOOK 140GSM 190 PAGES


Wednesday 11th December

  • What did the toilet roll complain about?
  • “People just keep ripping me off!”

Book tickets for the Lucien Freud Self Portrait exhibition at the Royal Academy followed by a leisurely stroll around the National Gallery and supper somewhere memorable.


Thursday 12th December

  • What should you do when you see a spaceman?
  • You just park in it, man.

Antony Williams is a particularly fine artist working in egg tempera, best known for his portraits. He has been on the short list or a placed prize winner in the BP Portrait awards many times.

Antony is coming to HAMPSHIRE ART studio to teach a masterclass in egg tempera, using a still life as reference. This is one I don’t want to miss.

Friday 13th December

My friend was planning to get a Labrador. Is he mad?! Hasn’t he seen how many of their owners go blind?!”


Derwent Inktense Blocks are sticks of vibrantly coloured water-soluble ink.

  • Draw with them dry to create dazzling colour effects, or add water for translucent ink-like results.
  • You can use them on both paper and fabric, especially silk, and the colours are permanent once dry.

CASS sell Derwent Inktense Blocks in tins containing either 36 or 72 blocks in assorted colours.


Saturday 14th December

Where do we get virgin wool from? Ugly sheep.

This photo was taken at Casa Rosa in Spain in spring 2019, during our tutored painting week. I can’t think of anything more cheering after a cold day in mid winter than the prospect of a week painting in Spain, in the sun, in the spring. I often look at the weather in Andalucia just to see what it is like there when it is grey here.

If you want to find out more try Andalucia in the Spring, or Artists take over Casa Rosa, an untutored week.


Sunday 15th December

One twin to the other: “You are ugly.”


Watercolour sets are always so attractive. Buy the professional sets for better pigment quality.

This half pan set is very good value.

WINSOR & NEWTON PROFESSIONAL WATERCOLOUR SET OF 24

I think you should include a special brush too.


Monday 16th December

What would you call a very funny mountain? 

Hill Arious”


If you are an artist beginner, or rusty and lacking in confidence, how about a course designed just for you?

The course is based around a combination of drawing and oil painting. It is on a termly basis, with a pair of days each month (always a Thursday and Friday combined). There will be suggested home study in between the classes. Have a look at this link for much more information Beginners class


Tuesday 17th December

  • What would Bears become without Bees?
  • Just ears.

The MUST HAVE item on everyones Christmas list is a HAMPSHIRE ART studio art apron, with a zipped pocket for valuables (no paint on them!) extra pockets, long ties, altogether excellent.


Wednesday 18th December

  • What do you call an alligator that’s wearing a vest?
  • An investigator.

The Beginners Oil Kit from CASS art is a very good starting point for people wanting to learn about oil painting..

You can top up this kit with any number of goodies…including the beginners guide to drawing and oil painting

All painters need a palette. There are loads to choose from. This is a traditional wooden one.


Thursday 19th December

Two drummers jump off a skyscraper – Boom Boom.


One of the products always on sale at CASS ART, and always a welcome addition to any oil painters stocking is their double pack of Winsor and Newton, Titanium White, 200ml. A sure winner.


Friday 20th December

  • How did Moses cut the sea in half?
  • With a seasaw.

Drawing is the way into thinking visually, the first step to everything, from painting to architecture. Part of the secret to drawing is learning to look. The next step is to take it in the direction YOU want to go.

Come along to a Learning to Look, drawing taster day. It may well whet your appetite for more.

Drawing Taster Day


Saturday 21st December

  • Doctor: You’re obese. 
  • Patient: For that I definitely want a second opinion. 
  • Doctor: You’re quite ugly, too.

There are lots of bits and pieces that fall under the heading ‘drawing equipment’. The following are things I always have in my pencil case (! mostly anyway)

  • Koh i noor retractable pencil, 5.8mm with a selection of leads. There are any number of different refills for these (other people make them too). I like to have a box with compressed charcoal, chalk, coloured chalks, sanguine. Find a pencil body shape that pleases you.
  • TomBow erasers and refills. I LOVE these. They are retractable, thin, thin rubbers in two shapes. Get both. I draw back into charcoal and pencil with them and they give my pleasure.
  • a scrappy little piece of chamois leather
  • a couple of very cheap disposable plastic retractable pencils. They come in a bag of 10 from TESCOs. I always have a sharp pencil. Not very ‘green’. I have had proper thin retractable pencils that you can refill but I prefer the cheap version.
  • a Tortillion, a roll of tightly wrapped paper for smudging
  • a big plastic rubber
  • three drawing pencils, 3B, 5B and 7B


Sunday 22nd December

  • Policeman: I’m very sorry, sir, but it looks like your wife got hit by a bus.
  • Man: I’m aware of that, but Karen has a wonderful personality.

“Andalucia is one of the most beautiful corners of Europe, where the excesses of modern life do not seem to have taken root and travellers are welcomed as honoured guests. Beloved by Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway, it is the Spain of Carmen, Figaro and Flamenco. Rich with the legacies of the Moors and Romans its charm and serenity will captivate you.” Sunday Times

Casa Rosa in the Spring: Wild flower heaven

Wild flowers in the Andalucian countryside

You only have to book a return flight.  No hidden extras.

Kate Measham, an experienced artist and teacher, will tutor the group from the exquisite setting of Casa Rosa ( do look at the website to see more about the buildings and the estate) with our host, Rosie Tatham welcoming you to her home.

 

Kate Measham, tutor

Kate has been teaching and running courses in Hampshire for over 10 years including regular courses on the Greek Island Zakynthos.

Having studied ‘Visual Art through Drawing’ at Winchester School of Art, Kate has since expressed her ideas through a range of media in painting, drawing, printing, wood turning and teaching, always using her imagination and expressing those ideas figuratively, or semi abstractly.

Drawing is the cornerstone of Kate’s work.  She is keen to encourage her students to explore, investigate, be intuitive and imaginative through drawing. 

Despite the energy, strength and colour of Kate’s artistic style, she is not interested in creating a house style. Students are encouraged to find their own voice and to develop the necessary skills to explore it. 

Kate exhibits her work in many exhibition spaces including at Josie Eastwood Gallery, The Angelus Gallery, and Fisherton Mill.

Locally Sourced Food and Wine

 

Pomegranates grow in the surrounding orchards . Their pink blush is matched by this rug from Casa Rosa. This bowl is from potteries in  Granada, about an hour away. 

The art weeks at Casa Rosa have a house party feel.

You will eat most meals together with Kate, Rosie and the other students. Casa Rosa sits in the middle of its own orchards and Spring will see the orchards bursting with new growth. The house and cottages are  full of delightful surprises, pictures, pottery and antiques collected locally and from years of travel.

Food is an important part of the pleasure of staying at Casa Rosa. Rosie’s approach is to serve warm salads and raw food and to combine that with other very comforting solutions to restore the heart and soul after a day of hard labour at the easel.  Rosie has spent many years travelling the world and discovering different gastronomic delights. 

She will attempt to accommodate any nutritional requirements, but please give good warning before you arrive.

The Artists’ Day

Breakfast will be a rolling affair from 8.30 – 9.30am.

From 10.00 until 1.00pm there will be a three-hour, taught morning session in the spacious studio, or outside, followed by a delicious and healthy lunch, a possible siesta and time for you to work on your own projects.

Tuition will resume from 5.00 until 7.00pm for a further 2 hours of painting, or drawing.  After the evening session, you will gather for drinks and supper.

There will be many opportunities for discussion and analysis – if you want to – over wine, olives and food.

What to Expect on the Course

The week will be suitable for everyone, from beginners to the experienced. Projects will be personalised to meet all skill levels.

colours, shapes, textures in the Casa Rosa gardens

The course will be based at Casa Rosa using their studio and enjoying the panoramic views of dramatic mountains, olive covered farmland and mature, colourful gardens and grounds.

You will work on both quick sketches and paintings and longer projects, looking at how to capture a feeling of place and atmosphere.

Colour, palette, tone, mark making, and composition will form the basis of the week.

Risks, experimentation and new approaches will be encouraged.

A sketchbook diary of the week will help you to recall all when you return home.

Trying to capture Casa Rosa
Orange and blue still life

There is a tennis court, swimming pool, delightful gardens and  table tennis  to divert you and relax yo. Rosie can advise you about walks in the area. You can use the studio at anytime.

In the middle of the week there will be a rest day.  Various activities will be on offer such as walking, or visiting the village of Periana.  You may prefer to  sit by the pool, catch up on a painting project, or read a book.

Artists are free to join in the lessons as much as they like, or to sit some of them out and enjoy the facilities offered at Casa Rosa and its surrounding area, the Axarquía.

Partners may accompany artists and simply relax and enjoy Casa Rosa.

The group will not exceed 12 artists but non-painting partners are welcome.

Make Casa Rosa, Andalucia, your holiday destination for Spring 2020

New Classes start in September


It is a glorious sunny day; a Sunday to laze about with a book, or a sketchbook, or a Sunday to get jobs done. Don’t waste it…pick fruit, get outside. This evening plan which autumn classes will make the darker days more interesting and fulfilling.

Blue skies; ripe damsons

Autumn isn’t here yet but there is change in the air. At this time of year I promise myself I’m going to take up something new, French, Tai Chi, marathon running, etching. Some are more successful than others.

September is a time for new beginnings

New Classes with HAMPSHIRE ART studio

This week is the start of the Autumn Term for artdrawpaint with HAMPSHIRE ART studio. I have classes for those of you who want to learn about painting with oils, drawing classes, regular life drawing classes, and painting classes (jointly with Chris Davies). There are five drawing classes, five life drawing classes and five painting classes. They are linked and progressive, but can very easily be taken individually.

If you need help deciding what is right for you contact me and we can work through it together.

If you want to extend the summer join me in Andalucia in 4 weeks time for a week of painting at the very lovely Casa Rosa.

There are other classes with new tutors, and new venues are going to be part of the HAMPSHIRE ART studio remit. I am very excited about it.

This term is the start of our Master Classes with Nick Bashall and Sarah Spackman sharing their expertise. Their classes are both fully booked however we are taking a few people onto waiting lists. There will be more masterclasses in the new year so keep an eye on what is happening.

Visit HAMPSHIRE ART studio for more information and to book.
