I regularly do workshops at my garden studio Salisbury and at Salisbury Museum and Salisbury Cathedral! In fact, even as I write, I'm currently mind mapping my plans for a workshop on Constable, in October, as part of the museum's excellent exhibition programme.
But you don't need to wait to October, to decide to come to a workshop.
On Tuesday 10th May I'm doing an all day workshop in my lovely studio called "Art for pleasure". It's my most popular workshop, and I simply love it.
Everyone has a great time and learns how to get back to their art and enjoy drawing and creating once more, even if it's been years (decades!) since they last picked up a pencil.
I also have one place left on my Capturing landscapes course on 26th May! Places are going fast!
So what can you expect?
Each workshop begins at 10.30 and ends around 3.30pm.
Bring your own packed lunch, I'll provide tea, coffee and squash all day!
We begin with drawing. A few quick drawings to start you off.
I'll teach you some great techniques to build your confidence and get you going.
You can work in a variety of different media - pastels have proved really popular in the past, when people have wanted to add colour, but don't want to head towards paint straight away. Alternatively, Watercolours are great to add a wash of colour to a drawing.
My workshops are hands on - you'll work hard and I'll do plenty of demos to help explain how you can take your art further.
The courses are relaxed and enjoyable.
A Maximum of 5 places means that I can help everyone achieve better artwork.
Every course is always great fun, book your place now on the next one!

You don't need to pay in advance, simply send me an email, asking to reserve a place on "Art for Pleasure" on 10th May or "Capturing Landscapes" on 26th May.

Treat yourself, you'll have a great day!
