If a complete beginner, or with limited experience and cannot do one of the weekly classes, I still have places on the all day Saturday class, held once a month, second Saturday of each month, at Lydiate L31 4EQ.
Art classes for everyone, beginners and upwards
New beginners art classes will also be starting June 2021 at Lydiate L31 4EQ. Also for those with previous experience seeking to improve their art and be introduced to new ways of doing art. This course will run for 10 consecutive weeks, fee £100, then on going through the year. If interested, please contact me for further details. Also if you would like to take up art online, via zoom art classes.
Before deciding if you'd like to take up art, you are welcome to visit any of our art classes, meet members and talk to them, find out what their experience has been. Remember, they all started with no more than a desire to want to take up art! And that's all you need as you can learn all the basics of doing art, and more.

Every one can learn art!
Many people believe that to take up art you have to be born
with a natural talent...! Not true...
You can be taught the basics of art, and much more.... Yes, you can be taught drawing, art, painting.
In the same way you'd learn other things in life:
how to drive, ride a bike, bake a cake. All you need to learn art is to have nothing more than the desire to want to do it!
These varied art workshops offer: watercolour, pen & ink, creative drawing, working semi-abstract, taster life drawing sessions.
Visits to major exhibitions
Last September members visited the John Moores painting prize exhibition at the Walker art gallery, Liverpool. A unique opportunity to see 'modern art' up close, and hopefully inspire members to re-think how they produce art, or to trigger ideas of their own.
Painting out of doors
When the weather allows, the members on the weekly classes, also the Saturday class, work out of doors. Each venue allows us this opportunity, whether in Southport, Lydiate and Hightown. Artists enjoy this experience as it allows you to work directly from the subject, much better than relying on a photograph!

Drawing for everyone
Drawing for everyone is over 3 consecutive Saturdays, but currently suspended due to the coronavirus situation.
This class is designed for anyone wanting to draw and eventually paint. Or those who paint but feel that the drawing part lets them down. You will start with how to measure a subject and draw it in proportion, using the thumb-and-pencil method. You will also use charcoal to develop skills in applying tonal (shading) values. Also, how to use the 'grid system'. This is especially useful if drawing up a complex subject, or a portrait.
This class is now done online, via zoom. More information, contact me...
