I run workshops in Bath, visit art societies, festivals and schools – teaching children and teachers – and offer private classes in your home. Summer 2016 saw me teaching in marquees, a heritage centre and even a rural dairy overlooking its lovely herd of cows! Below are details on each type of course but please email me with any specific enquiries.
watercolour landscapes for adults – beginners & improvers:
Enjoy the freedom of form within landscapes in my Bath-based watercolour workshops, during Wylye Valley Art Trail and at First-View Gallery at Stourhead gardens, Wiltshire. Because of the forgiving subject matter, landscape workshops are suitable for beginners as well as those with painting experience. Learn to paint on a sloping watercolour board, encouraging paints to mix themselves with the aid of water and control the resulting chemistry. Subjects can include: Beautiful Bath Slopes; Winter trees; Gorgeous skies; Inundation; Dramatic clouds & weather; misted landscapes etc.
The next available landscape one-day-workshops are: Wednesday 11th or Wednesday 18th October 2017: Winter 2017:18 A4 workshop flier
watercolour portraits for adults – some experience:
Develop your understanding of facial features. Experience complex colour mixing for portraits. Work “wet-in-wet” to map tonal variation and lend drama to your portraits. Suitable for painters with a little experience.
The next portrait workshop day is: Thursday 2nd November 2017 in Bath:Winter 2017:18 A4 workshop flier
I am often asked to demonstrate my watercolour techniques to Art Groups and at festivals and events. Examples of subjects are: misted landscapes; seascapes; Bath slopes; enchanted woodland; underwater worlds; head-and-shoulder portraits etc.
Please Email me for particular enquiries.
schools and teacher workshops:
I find that pupils who sometimes find it hard to engage in academic sessions often find it easier to concentrate when creating their art. I am used to tutoring large groups with particular experience of teaching Years 5,6 & 7s. I also provide one-to-one tutorials for A’Level and GCSE students. I enjoy developing themed workshops around the needs of your school, as well as delivering creative sessions for teachers.
