art classes

When I moved to the Forest of Dean in 2006 I went to life drawing classes for a while, run by Sheila. Sadly, she has 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.

I’ve decided to set up some drawing classes here in the Forest, because if there’s something missing it’s a good impetus for making it happen!

I’ve already had a lot of people sign up, so will probably set up another session during daytime too. But I need to gauge interest and don’t want the classes to be more than 15 people. These first sessions will be a chance for you to explore drawing as a medium, while I find out more about you and what you would like to do. I’d love to run life drawing days, drawing outside, a bit of simple printmaking, painting etc.

So let’s start with drawing, as it’s a very good place to start!  (sung to the tune of  doe a deer).
