When I moved to the Forest of Dean in 2006 I went to life drawing classes for a while. Sadly, the tutor moved away, and since then I’ve not done any, either as a tutor or an attender. For many years I taught adult education in Yate, near Bristol – drawing, painting and light-touch print-making. I also taught at FE and life drawing at the lovely Prema Art Centre.
Each course I run will vary, some people prefer to bring their own materials, others, to try new things, so opt to put into a kitty to pay for shared stock, without buying something they may never use again.
I recently discovered that there’s a Jackson’s Shop in Gloucester! Definitely worth a trip – I thought they were London based, so it is fantastic to find them here on my doorstep. You can order online too, but going to browse is, for me, like being a kid in a sweetshop. They also have information about courses on their website, so I shall be posting mine up when they are confirmed.
I’m now running observational drawing classes in Newnham in clusters of 6 weeks. If you are interested, get in touch, the next series begins on Momday 19th Feb.
I’m also offering half-day sessions for U3A groups. I trecently ran a getting-to-know-charcoal session with the Shirenewton U3A Group. If you live in the Chepstow area do join them, a friendly group and a wonderful space to work in, with lots of light.
Here are some images of and by the class members, it was very well recieved.
I love drawing, as it’s a very good place to start! (sung to the tune of doe a deer). I confess I really want to run ‘looking classes’ because that’s what it is about, but I doubt anyone would come. Or would you?
