Classes

The painting classes are held in three locations on set days of the week; Garstang on Mondays, Preston on Tuesdays and Fridays, and St Annes on Sea on Thursdays.

In these classes I use a simple step-by-step approach to show how a complete novice to painting or an experienced painter, can get effective results using the simplest of means.

The classes cover a range of subjects as shown in the programmes below. Students can attend as many classes as they like. No two classes are the same.

Class sizes are typically between eight and ten students which allows for one-to-one tuition. All art materials and necessary equipment are supplied.

Classes start at 10:00 a.m. and finish at 3:00 p.m. with a one hour break at noon for lunch. Hot drinks and a selection of biscuits are available throughout the day.
