art classes and workshops

'The meaning of life is to find your gift...the purpose of life is to give it away' Pablo Picasso

To understand the Methods of the Old Masters such as Rembrandt, Titian and Caravaggio can seem like a daunting task for many people. It normally requires a lot of time, commitment, cost and dedication. .

I have produced a series of classes that can bring interested painters from beginner to advanced level.through a modular skills development programme which is educational and at the same time captures and retains interest. This pathway is aimed at painters who want to take their art to a level beyond the popular hobby and leisure courses readily available. It's an approach that instills confidence, skills and ambition while producing good results. These workshops are for everyone. These classes are on going during term time.

The three day and the five day intensive workshops cover and explain The Methods of the Old Masters in bite size easily digestible chunks. The participants will leave with a greater understanding of how to produce a three dimensional painting on a two dimensional canvas

Through my experience as a mentor and coach and through my participation in a Professional Development Programme, I help artists plan and achieve their creative goals. I can act as a guide and sounding board through the process of applying for open calls, residencies and grants in a methodical and practical way.
