If you have always wanted to try painting but don't know where to start, these classes are for you. I provide step by step tuition combined with lots of basic tips for drawing and sketching, watercolours and acrylics including which equipment to use and lots more. Week by week you will build on your basic skills to give yourself more confidence.

The Beginners Foundation Art Course is weekly for 10 weeks. The cost of the lessons are £24 each week, all inclusive, and are payable at the beginning of each month. The weekly fee includes -:

• Step by Step tuition from a fully qualified and experienced Art Tutor. (Please see "About Me" page)

We will be drawing and painting a variety of subjects including Seascapes, Landscapes. Flowers, Animals and Still Life. Full colour handouts are included. I will also explain about perspective and how to use your own photos for paintings.You have the choice of continuing, space permitting, in one of the Improvers groups.
