The next enrolement for the beginners art classes is coming up soon, so please contact me. An ideal opportunity to learn drawing and painting, starting with the basics. The venue is within easy reach of Liverpool, Formby, Southport and Ormskirk. It will cover exactly the same course plan as the weekly class, but each Saturday will be the equvalent to three evening classes. Hours, 10am till 4.00.(If weather permits, eventually we can work out doors, at the Hayloft, just a short distance away).

The Hayloft offers ample opportunites to work from peacocks, ducks, local church, woods and nearby the ruins of St. Catherine's Abby. Usually you need only basic drawing materials, sketch pad and pencils. The idea is to draw, sketch information, take that back to the studio and work up a painting.

Art classes are an ideal way of learning how to paint and draw. The art courses that I run, including life drawing, are intended not just to teach you the subjects, but to fully involve you in the artistic world. Remember, you are under no pressure and you get from it whatever you want to take away. I often find that people on my art courses like to have access to other interesting art related events, like visiting galleries and viewing exhibitions. Also, they like to see their own work up on a wall in an art gallery, or in an exhibition. I help run an artistsí cooperative gallery in Southport, and this allows us the opportunity to show membersí work in a professional setting.
