Each term I run a series of one off workshops at my studio. These are designed to give a more in-depth lesson in using specific media or techniques, or the opportunity to concentrate on a particular subject, such as life drawing.
Workshops are suitable for all abilities as I start with a demonstration and then work with individuals to help them get the best from the session. Tea, coffee and cake are provided but please bring a packed lunch to the classes which run over lunchtime. Booking is essential as numbers are limited.

Drawing the human figure from a live model is how artists have traditionally been taught to draw. Observation and proportion apply to whatever art form you enjoy and this is still a fantastic way to improve your skills. This workshop is suitable for those who are new to life drawing and those who wish to develop their skills further.
