  • Description
    "Begin 2 Draw" 5 week course:
    Developed to help you to start drawing and improve your drawing abilities at the most basic level. You don't need to have any previous drawing experience just bring a willingness to have a go and have some fun.

    "Life in Colour" 10 week Course:
    If you are interested in learning how to perceive and handle colour, then this is the course for you! You may have a fear of colour and colour mixing, Denise will help guide you through this complex subject.

    This course aims to tackle the deeper subject of colour and colour perception. The aim of the course is to attain a greater awareness of colour and how to capture it successfully in paintings and drawings.

    You will be working mainly in acrylic paints from still life subjects with the opportunity to work from the portrait and life model at the end of the course. The course builds your understanding of colour week by week, culminating in working from the live model.

    "Ways of Seeing" 10 week Courses:
    The ability to observe well and to draw what you see and convey meaning to others underpins all creative disciplines. This course aims to help you to develop your observation and drawing skills through a series of practical demonstrations and hands-on tutor assisted workshops.

    We will be working from the nude and clothed model. We will cover life drawing and portraiture, but also general observation of still life (objects).

    We will be mainly using pencil and/or charcoal on paper. You will learn various techniques and methods of solving the challenges of drawing from observation. The course includes theory and practical demonstrations.

    Whether you are new to drawing or more experienced, my hope is that this course will expand your ability to see and translate what you see onto paper in your own way.

    Testimonials:
    "I highly recommend taking classes with Eric. His classes are really fantastic. I have learned so much from him and my drawing skills have improved dramatically. Eric is a most generous teacher and a talented artist, worth every penny."
    - Alison

    "Fantastic commitment to teaching you how to draw. I had no previous experience at the start."
    -Gail

    "I am about to start my second course with Eric. I really enjoyed the first one and learnt more in three months than i have previously. The small class size means he can spend good quality time with each student and he is incredibly knowledgeable and an excellent teacher.
    The general environment is fabulous, a lovely new studio and good selection of very different models to keep things challenging, all of whom were very professional.
    Really looking forward to the new term starting."
    -Maribel

    "It was such an enriching experience to move from only knowing how to draw "stick people". Eric's classes are small and well-structured, so whatever your level, you get lots of personal attention from a talented and inspiring teacher, learning alongside others, in a relaxed and friendly setting."
    -Carole
