NB These are not the dates that were originally published (The old dates clashed with half terms)
November 5th, 6th and 7th
10.00am – 4.00pm
At the Studio, Riverside Cottage, Bransbury
On this three day course you will start with a life model, drawing for reference and information. Using very rapid sculptural techniques you will construct 3D models from your drawings using paper mâché, tape, wood, and probably wire, and anything else that seems appropriate. When you start to ‘draw’ the model in 3D different information is needed – this adds to the interesting step from straight forward life drawing to sculpture.
The sculpture will become the model for your drawing and painting over the rest of the course.
This method opens your imagination to adapting the model. It sounds a bit weird and creepy – and why not? The models can take you way beyond masks, or even catrinas as seen below. The resulting drawings and paintings have an observed reality. It should be an exciting few days.
Coffee, tea, biscuits and a light lunch will be provided each day.
Some materials will be provided but you will be encouraged to use/recycle old drawings and paintings as well as other dry waste materials (egg cartons, loo roll holder, boxes, posters…who knows)
This is a Saturday course designed for those of you who have never painted with oils, or are very rusty.
I will provide the materials – you can start to accumulate your own once you know what you like to use. Picture below is sweet shop made real…you will need considerably less to get started. To start with this set would be like learning to drive in an Aston Martin.
You will start with looking at tone and becoming used to working with oils. It will be in a fun and supportive atmosphere, though possibly a bit messy.

Everyone has complicated commitments over the summer months; Drawing and Painting classes don’t always find a place on ‘to do’ lists.
This summer I plan to hold an open regular class on Thursdays. It will be quite casual with drawing, painting and general free for all encouraged.
There won’t be separate afternoon sessions – you buy a day and turn up anytime between 10.00 and closing time at 16.00. If you opt for all 10 sessions it will be £350 for the summer. If you opt for individual days, which you need to specify, it will be £50/day. Priority will be given to those that book for the full summer.
FIRST COME FIRST SERVE
I will provide coffee, tea and biscuits as usual, advice to those that want it, drawing exercises at 10.00, and a general theme/plan for the day.

£95 for the day, to include lunch and all materials,
Have you thought about having a go at art classes? at re-visiting drawing, or painting? or do you want to prepare for a bit of sketching on holiday? If the answer is ‘yes’ come to a Taster Day at Riverside Cottage.
In the morning you will experiment with drawing materials and drawing, followed by an afternoon of painting and throwing everything at it.
Drawing materials will include pencil, charcoal, chalk, ink, marker pens, wax crayons, calligraphy brushes, twigs, sponges…whatever we can squeeze in. There will be painting in the afternoon in a similar vein. This will be a busy and exciting day.
Riverside Cottage will provide a delicious, light lunch, coffee on arrival and cream tea when you are exhausted in the afternoon.
Bring a friend, send a sister, encourage anyone who needs a new adventure – no experience necessary, no equipment needed.
All materials will be provided – you just need to turn up and be prepared to have a go.
