I teach atelier style drawing and painting classes using traditional methods as used by the old masters using the sight size technique, plumb lines and mirrors. The method involves long poses and slow studies.

My classes are situated in the 4020 Art Group room in the wonderful old Hanwell Community Centre in West London. Because of the size restriction, I have to limit classes to a maximum of 10 people for life drawing, and 8 for painting, so reserving a space is essential. All classes are run by the term. Please contact me for availability.

I will be running my usual Life Drawing class on Monday evenings and Life Painting in Oils on Tuesday evenings this term. Contact me if you would like to attend or would like to be added to my mailing list for future terms. Classes are usually run by the twelve week term depending on school holidays, with a week off at half term in the middle. This term runs from September 11th to December 9th. Payment is due in advance of the first class.

The poses for my drawing class each last for 3 weeks. This gives time to study the figure in detail, learn about sight-size techniques line and shadow pattern. We alternate male and female models. The classes are small and friendly. Tea and coffee is provided.

Painting classes have a longer pose of the full 12 weeks. Students will work in sight-size, drawing directly onto the canvas first to give accurate proportions for the painting. I will be teaching oil colour techniques but students are welcome to work in other mediums. Students would need to bring their own painting supplies and I can advise on materials.
