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

Charcoal…almost painting, almost drawing

Regular drawing and painting is the best way to learn and to improve.

Here are six classes. On alternate weeks there are drawing and painting classes…always on a Thursday.

These are all stand alone classes so if you can’t do one or two don’t worry.

As far as possible, the painting class will paint a Still Life that was drawn in the previous drawing class. So if you are doing both classes this will help to familiarise you with the still life.

You can still come to the painting class if you weren’t at the drawing class, and you don’t have to come to painting classes if you only want to draw. You decide what YOU want to do.

  • Thursday, 4th April – Drawing
  • Thursday, 11th April – Painting
  • Thursday, 2nd May – Drawing
  • Thursday, 9th May – Painting
  • Thursday, 23rd May – Drawing
  • Thursday, 30th May – Painting

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.
