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

Size Matters: THINK BIG


  • Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th March, 10am – 4.30pm
  • £180/person
  • Materials will be provided.
  • Coffee and Tea readily available, please bring something to eat for lunch.

In this class you will be thinking about how, and why size matters.

It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner, or you have never drawn larger than A4 …because …before you know it you will be stretching through an aerobic workout, reaching areas of paper you hadn’t contemplated before. This is surprisingly physical.

There will be elements of mixed media, and various different drawing techniques. You will contemplate the different compositional approach needed for a big picture. If a drawing is larger than life size what are you saying; does it DEMAND more? Come and experiment and see what you think.

Let’s not be boring doing all drawings the same size. Size matters. Explore, experiment and grow. In this class you will be doing huge drawings (about 4′ x 4′) . See and feel the difference size makes.

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…always on a Thursday.

These are all stand alone classes.

As far as possible, the painting class will paint a Still Life that was drawn in the previous drawing class. 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.

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