2018 - 2019 Dates


Weekly classes


Block 5: May 8th/10th - June 12th/14th

Payment of £60 due by 17th May.


For this block, some restrictions will be put on what you do, and you can be inventive about "making do" with what you've got.

Week 1 No special materials required this week. You'll be looking at a couple of aspects of colour theory and applying them to portraiture. Here's a link to a Pinterest page. For this week, have a look at the Warm and Cool section.

Week 2 No standard materials allowed! But that doesn't prevent creativity - there's a whole world of materials outside for you to compose, invent and play with.

Week 3 Observation is this week's focus. Please bring along some, but not necessarily all, of the following:

shiny metal objects;

junk mail and brochures on matte paper;

leftover household emulsion paint;

old plates to donate to class as palettes



Sketchbook Circle If you brought in a sketchbook last week you should now have a different one. Fill in page 3, responding in some way to page 2. Bring the sketchbook in this week to swap again.  



Truth and Fiction exhibition


Tweeddale Picture Gallery 6th April - 18th May

Removal of works - pick up unsold work on WEDNESDAY 22nd MAY 10.30-12.30, 13.00-16.00.
