By Varsha,


now you can learn online! Via zoom. First lesson free.

Only 2 places now left on this course. If interested best to contact me quickly.

You want to take up art, but don't want to travel to the nearest art class. Then consider doing zoom classes with me.

Never used zoom before? Worried about using this 'new technology' and feel out of your depth? No problem, because I'd never heard of zoom before last March. Now it feels so natural to use. If interested in joining any of the below classes, I will arrange a free introduction for you, to familiarize you with it so you can enjoy it. Members who use zoom are very happy with it.

The classes are designed to give you a relaxed and comfortable class which allows you to learn art.

Weekly handout sent to you explaining classes for the coming week.

The format of the class is roughly as follows. When all participants have joined, we relax with a drink and we take a look at the subject I will have sent you in advance. I then discuss it with you and explain the lesson outcome. I then start you off by demonstrating the first phase. You watch and then make a start and catch-up. I then continue with the next phase. Again you will follow on. We have several pauses so we can look at each other's effort and I can give you further help and suggestions. We end the session with a final look at your work, not to judge it, but to give positive feedback to encourage you. I never say to anyone that their work is 'bad', because art doesn't work on a it's either good or bad. The class is designed to teach you techniques.

Beginners class starts on January 26th.

 3 consecutive weeks, 26th January, 2nd & 9th February, fee £30. Then you can enrol for more weeks if you wish and we go through most of the year.

Saturday mornings

On this Saturday morning class, you can concentrate on further life drawing development, either continuing the drawing process, or painting.

portraiture, 7.30 to 9.30

Portraiture is the most rewarding subject to create, drawing or painting. It's also the most difficult.

Reason: for a formal portrait to be convincing and achieve a likeness, depends on placing the main features accurately. Without this skill, you will usually fail at portraiture. It's as simple as that. Yes, you can learn the basic measuring technique quickly, then it's a question of practice, but practice that you will enjoy because you will see the value of it.

Once you are happy with the basics, then we move forward with the painting process and much more.

for more details, please contact me.

Tuesday mornings watercolour, 9.30 to 11.30

Watercolour class for those with some experience of using watercolour. You don't need to be very experienced to join this class, just an understanding of how to use the medium in a basic way. You will learn how to improve your technique. This class is designed to keep pushing you forward by experimenting with application of paint, even using ink, pastel.

It's not important to end the session with a finished painting, though often we do. It's intended that you 'learn'. I'm a strong believer in an 'impressionistic' approach - loose brushwork, more instinctive and spontaneous approach to watercolour, rather than a highly detailed approach, though if that is your preferred technique, fine, I will still give you help.

Tuesday evenings, beginners 7.30 to 9.30

You will never paint well unless you get the basic drawing correct. You may have tried to draw at home, or in another art class, and quickly get frustrated because your drawing isn't like the subject in front of you! At this point, many would-be artists give up, which is a real tragedy. Problem is, there is a persistent myth that to be able to draw you need to be born with a natural talent. Untrue. Anyone can learn to draw in the same way you learn most things in life: drive a car, bake a cake, play a sport. Art is no different.

On week one, you will be introduced to materials needed, drawing. The first thing you will measure and draw is a humble bottle, to demonstrate the measuring system. Week two you will continue measuring and drawing, the subject now consisting of 3 items. And you continue to progress each week. By week 4 you will be introduced to using charcoal to turn your flat drawings into a 3 dimensional piece of art. By week 7 you'll probably start the painting process. Eventually you will be taught colour theory and how to mix colours, plus much more.
















Wednesday mornings, 9.30 to 11.30

This class is designed for people who have some experience of using acrylics, or indeed oils, as they work in a similar way. A reasonable knowledge of drawing up a subject is desirable. The format is the same as the other classes, once settled in, I will discuss the subject with you, then demonstrate. You will follow. We pause at times to catch up with you and to give feedback on your effort. We have a variety of subject, landscape, still-life, figurative.

Wednesday evenings, 7.30 to 9.30

working creatively.


This class is designed for people wanting to take their painting to another, more creative level. Yes, people need to be shown how to release the creative side of their brain and this can only be achieved through tuition and guidance.

We use a variety of mediums, from simple drawing, including of inks, watercolour, acrylics, pastel, charcoal, collage and so on. When working creatively, there's is 'not right way,' or 'wrong way' to achieve a piece of art work!

You will be encouraged to release your inner-self, your own expressive way of working that cannot be really achieved in working strictly in a representational way. You will be encouraged to sketch, using more than one pencil at a time, for example. This will automatically loosen your drawing without little effort on your part. The painting process is about expressive use of paint, adding of collage and so on.





Thursday evenings, 7.30 to 9.30

Beginners, stage 2


Beginners art class. After about week 12, you will be taught colour theory, how to mix colours. Often, people new to art, will buy dozens of tubes of paint! You don't need to. From the 3 primary colours you can achieve a wide range of colours. This takes about 3 weeks, then you will start your first landscape using colour. This will be a big step forward as it will give you a degree of independence to work from your own subjects. But you continue to keep learning. You will be introduced to other mediums, pen & ink, eventually watercolours, mixed media, collage, and much more. Yes, it does take time.

life drawing





Two alternative Saturday mornings per month, 10am to 12.30

life drawing





Figurative art, two alternative Saturday mornings per month, 10am to 12.30



This class, held two alternative Saturdays each month, is to allow you to continue developing your figurative drawing and painting. It's intended to compliment the life drawing class, where you can work directly from the nude figure via zoom, also if doing portraiture. The aim is to combine the other two disciplines to allow you to get a thorough understanding of the processes involved, allowing you to draw and paint the human form with confidence.

Times 10 am till 12.30. Fee £12. If interested, just get back to me for more details.
