Last days of Summer and Autumn’s plans begin to hatch

Just a short message from the team today as we are ensconced in glorious North Wales on our painting holiday. All is going well, everyone is getting along famously and paintings are beginning to appear. We are lucky to have been offered a fabulous private estate for the week, usually used for shooting parties, which has landscape in every direction so the logistics are easier this year, we can just walk out and paint.

Setting out – a painter heads off to find a spot to paint after breakfast

In one week’s time our Autumn term will begin and we will be welcoming new artists and old friends back to the studio as we all endeavour to be better artists. If you have yet to sign up for a course there may still be one or two places left.

We are also launching our updated website in the next couple of weeks so if you visit the website and it all looks a bit Dutch, that’ll be why. We will have an enhanced bookings system for all of our groups which we hope will make the admin a little smoother and a cleaner look and feel

The Introduction to Life Drawing course is now full but you may still reserve a place for next term, starting in January.

There are however still places on our Intermediate Life Drawing course on Tuesday evenings from the 17th September, which is the natural follow on if you’ve completed our Introduction to Life Drawing. You can read more about this course and Sign up here

Thursday evenings drop-in summer life drawing has ended now so there will be no session this evening.

This is a drop-in group for those wanting to work on their portraiture. If you haven’t been for a while would you fill in the form and read more here so that we can keep the numbers manageable.
