Held by Anne Laidler
When teaching I aim to provide enjoyable and fun art classes for all abilities from complete beginners through to those who have painted before but maybe not for many years. I think my job, when leading the classes, is to give guidance, tuition and encouragement to all.
In my fortnightly classes we concentrate mainly on watercolour with the occasional pen and ink and acrylic sessions. Once every couple of months or so I also run all-day workshops in pastels and acrylics. These workshops are not designed for the complete beginner as the subjects are more technical and often require a little experience to complete.
Having been on courses where you are given a large and often expensive shopping list of equipment I have learnt that it is much better to provide equipment for everyone to use as part of the class fee. I provide good quality named brand equipment as my philosophy is that you have to have reasonable paint, paper and brushes to produce something you are happy with.
