I think I use the terms ‘drawing’ and ‘painting’ a bit differently to many other artists.
I use the term ‘drawing’ to mean the act of looking, really studying an object and trying to understand its form, shape and colour. To really get to grips with your subject matter.
All my courses tend to stress this side of art making. And it can be done whether you use ‘drawing’ materials or ‘painting’ materials. However you understand drawing and painting, you can draw with wet ‘painting’ materials and you can paint with dry ‘drawing’ materials. Believe me!
I use the terms ‘drawing’ and ‘painting’ quite loosely and many courses offer you the chance to use both dry drawing materials and wet painting materials (see the above list).

Hi, I’m interested in a beginners watercolour course/ are they any available?

Unfortunately we currently do not offer a watercolour class. I do run the Begin to draw + paint course which is a general introduction course for absolute-beginners that includes watercolours, acrylics, and a variety drawing materials. I hope this helps.

Hi there, I’m thinking of getting a class as a birthday gift for my (soon to be) 29 yr old son who was never really beem arty but is always up for new experiences. I think you say they’re evening classes? He’s been doing a call centre job from home but uses a colouring book to get some stress out between calls so he would be open to this I’m sure! 🙂 I’m thinking the Cezanne one for £42 might be the best for him. The pictures look nice and colourful! Would you think that’s about right? And what’s the best way of booking it? Also, he’s about to start training for a new Work Coach role at the Eccles Job Centre so if these are evening classes, what are the timings / how long are the classes etc? Many thanks.

Hi Madeleine. Thank you for contacting me. I think any of the 3 evening workshops about the Modern Masters may be suitable. I have emailed you directly with a more detailed response to your questions. Kind regards, Brian
