Paint My Pooch (or any other Pet) - £35

This fun portrait session uses simple trace and transfer techniques to get a pic of your pet on to canvas then we’ll explore ways to paint in acrylic to create a personal pet portrait.

From flat colours for a modern graphic look to loose sketchy and just a little but scruffy ways to capture hairy pets, the aim is to have fun and get a bit of character on to canvas. This is a great all-levels class and beginners are very welcome.

An intro on how to use the paint and basic colour-mixing is included, and we supply all paints and canvases.

Please email the photo you’d like to paint from in advance so we can do a bit of prep for you.

Tea, coffee and chocolate included.

Mini Art Foundation - £105


Looking to learn to draw or ready to improve your art skills?
This 4 x session course covers the essentials from measuring in drawing to creating convincing tones and textures. We will work in different mediums, drawing and painting from life and culminating in a portrait session with a model.

It’s a great foundation that is designed to boost your art skills and build your confidence week by week.


WEEK 1: Drawing basics – Working in pencil and charcoal, we’ll be making a couple of different studies from life. Learn how to really look and how to measure to get accurate shapes and proportions.
WEEK 2: Texture and tone – How to make objects look 3-dimensional and a bit more solid, plus mark-making tips for describing different textures.
WEEK 3: Painting from life – We move into paint and colour, learning how to mix colours, balance tones and we’ll explore different ways to apply paint.
WEEK 4: Drawing or painting a portrait – Working from a life model, use the skills you’ve learned to create a convincing head and likeness.
Each session is 2.5hours and all materials are supplied. We work in small groups and beginners are very welcome.

Plant Life in Watercolour - £35

From delicate flowers to crinkly cabbages and gnarly bark, the plant world is full of fascinating patterns and textures. We’ll use a mix of water-soluble pencils and watercolour paints to mark out form and structure then aim to capture some of those brilliant textures using the natural flows and washes of watercolour.

 

This class is suitable for beginners and is also a great next step from our Introduction to Watercolours workshop.

All materials supplied.

Tea, coffee and chocolate included.

Facebook Review

'Had a wonderful relaxing evening at the Plant Life in Watercolour class today. I have not done any art since I was at school (many years ago) but that didn’t matter at all. Everyone made me feel very welcome and there was lots of encouragement and I learnt lots about watercolour painting. Will definitely be booking onto more classes. Highly recommend!' -Kerry
