One-to-One Lessons

Similar to the group lessons but tailored to your individual needs. We come to you free of charge (if local) and can provide invaluable advice and demonstrations with your on-going projects. Especially useful if the work is too large to bring to a group session! There would be extra time to look at individual Strengths and Weaknesses.

Group Lessons

The scope of a group lesson will go from Thinking and Concepts, Your Motivation, Seeing, Drawing, Perspective-made-Simple, Demos of Watercolour/Impasto (thick paint – Acrylic). We will also cover your shopping List (advice on brushes, paint, papers and/or canvasses), to produce your first drawings or paintings with our attentive help.
