Oil Painting for rusty beginners


Monday, 28th October, 2019

10.00-4.00, at the Studio, Bransbury,

£80/day, tea, coffee and biscuits provided. Please bring your own materials.


If you have been to an Oil Painting Beginners course, and it was fine on the day, but you feel rusty, have slightly lost confidence and can’t quite remember what to do…this is the course for you. A one day gallop through the basics to set you off on the oil painting path.

Painting with oils is great fun once you get going, so come along to remind yourself that you CAN do it.

Courses are now booked via https://hampshireart.studio/shop/.

For this class please bring a mix of paints, rags, brushes, solvents, your palette, palette knife and a few things to paint on (paper, boards or canvas – not too small). Whilst you are on the Hampshire Art studio site have a look at the oil painting basket of materials from CASS ART. They can supply anything you are missing with a 10% discount if you go from our site.

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
