……………….. CLASSES – JANUARY TO APRIL 2019……………………….
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY MORNING CLASSES ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED FOR JANUARY TO EASTER 2019, BUT SOME PLACES ARE STILL AVAILABLE IN THE WEDNESDAY EVENING CLASS.
For information about classes either e-mail [email protected] or phone 0114 2367380 or, if you are already a member of the SAA, then fill in the form below.
My classes are in small. relaxed and friendly groups and the lessons are mainly on drawing skills and watercolour techniques, although other media are often used along with the watercolour. I don’t do any teaching in oils as the long drying time and clearing up problems make it impractical for a two hour lesson.
As a trained art teacher I know the value of thorough planning, preparation and organisation in teaching.
I arrange my classes in 10 lesson courses. Each course has a theme. The theme may be subject matter, media used, inspiration from a famous painter, techniques or a particular location. (Themes have included, “People and Portraits”, “Interiors and Light”, “Line and Wash”, “John Yardley”, “The Yorkshire Coast”, “Mixing Media with Watercolour”, “Edward Seago”. “Perspective”, “Atmosphere and Mood, “Buildings and Street Scenes”).
Seven lessons of the 10 lesson course are directed by me with demonstrations, examples, worksheets and written information as required. In the last 3 lessons the “students” put into practice what they have learned by doing their own original work based on, or inspired by, the current theme and I give individual help and advice. For this reason I only have about half a dozen people in a class, so that I can give everyone plenty of individual attention. I have beginners, improvers and proficient artists in my groups and I aim to help each person to work at their own pace to improve their skills, become more confident and really enjoy their painting.
The lessons are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from September to December, January to March and from April to July’
