 Hello everyone,

I'm very pleased to tell you that I'll be teaching some 10 week in person evening classes at Adult Learning Lewisham's Brockley Rise Centre, on Wednesdays and Thursdays 7.30 - 9.30pm, starting in January. 

The college are taking enrolments now, and you can find more information about the Wednesday life drawing and painting course here:

and the Thursday evening studio class here:

And don't forget my life drawing all day Saturdays that run every month! The next one is on December 11th - it's a hybrid class so look for OL on the end of the course code for zoom, and BR for the in person version at Brockley Rise:

Enrolments are now open for the spring runs of my Friday classes at ALL too - Friday morning studio:

And Watercolour Made Easy:

New runs of my independent classes Exploring Creativity 10 week course, and my Life Drawing Afternoons 5 week course start next week! Here are the details:

Exploring Creativity runs straight through for 10 weeks on Zoom, on Tuesdays 10am - 1pm. Each week we look at the work of a different artist - I send information on the Sunday before class and then on the day I give a lecture style presentation for the first hour, followed by a discussion. Then we have a tea break, followed by a demo where I show you techniques for making work inspired by the artist. You're free to follow along, or do your own thing. There's a sharing thread via email after class where you can post pictures of your work to share with the other students. The demo is videoed and if you don't want to attend live on zoom you can join the virtual version of the course, where I send the video to you via We Transfer.

The course is pay what you can - £5 per class minimum and £25 per class maximum, payable by bank transfer, sum up or pay pal - contact me by email for details. The virtual version of the course, where you receive the art demo video and access to the email information and sharing thread, but don't attend on zoom, costs £35 for the whole 10 weeks.

Here's the timetable for the winter run:
