Autumn painting at HAMPSHIRE ART studio starts on Thursday 19th September. The term is divided into different building blocks for painting. This week the focus is tone, tempera, light and depth.

Learn how the use of tempera (NOT egg tempera) can transform a picture. You will be working from a still life and copying an old master. A busy day.

Chris Davis, an artist from Abbotts Ann, will work alongside Kate Measham demonstrating these techniques.

Music and Movement


Thursday 4th July, 2019, 10.00am – 4.30pm

£90/all day, including materials and model

At the Riverside Cottage Studio, Bransbury, SO21 3QJ


People move…

Suitable for all abilities.

In this class you will be looking at the rhythm and pattern of movement. Music combined with rhythm and movement will encourage you to draw with varied marks and strokes. You will capture the model’s movement and tempo, whether explosive, calm, or repetitive.

You will do a series of exercises to show you different ways of interpreting the moving body. The drawings become something very different to photographs or film, possibly an expression of time and rhythm.

This is exciting drawing to undertake and exciting drawings to see.

Spring has sprung, 
the grass is ris...

… mowing has started, and other gardening tasks are planned. I love this time of year. I know lots of you like to be busy outside too. However, there are the occasional meteorological knock back. Thursday 4th April is the first drawing day of the spring classes and rain is forecast (https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2633858).

So, ignore the garden and hide out with us in Bransbury.


Slight lie…it won’t be scones, but expect good coffee and possibly some biscuits
