Taught by Sam, Drawing Classes will include Still-Life, copying exercises, Illustration, Art History, using pencil, charcoal, soft and oil pastels, coloured pencils, ink pen and watercolours.  This term we will be concentrating on Nature and Illustration, looking at orchids, bees and feathers, clouds and space, travel and the Taj Mahal, flags and heraldry, children’s illustration and a chance to work on project of your own with help from Sam. All classes will be fun and easy and highly suitable for beginners and will give you the professional hints and tips you need to improve your artistic talents. All materials are provided EXCEPT an A3 spiral topped sketch pad. A drink will be served at 11am on Thursdays and on arrival on Saturdays.

Want to bring a child? We welcome one child per adult supervisor ON SATURDAYS ONLY. The child will need to be able to concentrate fully for an hour and a half without distracting the rest of the group. The adult supervisor will need to fully attend the art class as a fully paid up participating artist and should be willing to help their child set up their work if necessary. Sam circulates the class but needs to give equal attention to every participant so you need to be sure that your child can sit and work steadily within instructions that are given verbally at the start of the class. This is not a child friendly craft class, it’s an adult class where very keen, artistic children will learn skills that will greatly assist their artistic skills throughout their school years. Children aged 12 and over will be welcome without the supervision of any adult as long as they can concentrate for an hour and a half without distracting the rest of the class.

I ALWAYS HAD AN AMBITION TO SKETCH/PAINT BUT LIFE GOT IN THE WAY FROM AGE 14. FAST FORWARD 44 YEARS AND WITH A LITTLE PUSH FROM MY WIFE I STARTED SAM’S SATURDAY ART CLASSES. I REALLY ENJOY IT. THERE IS NO PRESSURE AND LOTS OF CREATIVITY GIVEN BY SAM. YOU CAN BE YOURSELF ...
