Art Class, Still life session

Ants Art Class, Razzle Dazzle Pots, Nottingham
First week back since the Summer break and in tonights art class we looked at still life. I asked the class to bring in natural or processed elements so that they could explore the different textures and patterns that are formed. 

I am going to cover this over a couple of sessions, so that from the sketches and experiments they can produce a piece of work that represents what they have discovered.

Art class project work

Art class project work

Since holding the art classes earlier this year. Everyone who have attended, went through a brief introduction to drawing and painting. This applied to complete beginners and improvers.
So over the past few weeks, I decided to set a small project that would help bring together what they have learnt so far.
The idea was for them to come up with a theme and develop ideas towards a finished piece of artwork. They have a few more weeks to produce the final work.

Art class - Watercolour session

Art Class evening session at Razzle Dazzle Pots in Mapperley, Nottingham

At this evenings art class, the students faced the challenge of mixed media, watercolour and ink work. I feel this is a great transition from drawing to painting and learning what to add or take away with ink, pencil or watercolour. It is also a great way to pick out light and shade and understanding the use of basic colours to create depth and form. They are learning quite a lot in a short space of time and the enthusiasm to share and bounce off ideas in the group, adds to the fun and learning process.

Painting and Drawing Lessons in Mapperley, Nottingham

Drawing and Painting Lessons at Razzle Dazzle Pots, Mapperley, Nottingham. For all Beginners and Improvers.

Art Classes at Razzle Dazzle Pots in Mapperley, Nottingham

Would you like to learn how to draw and paint? Or maybe you have limited drawing experience and would like to improve on your skills in a friendly group setting? I am currently tutoring art lessons on a Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, at Razzle Dazzle Pots, Mapperley Top in Nottingham

Each 2 hour session is £10. A lot of people want to pursue it as a hobby or eventually develop this towards a further education qualification. But sometimes they tend to fall at the first hurdle which is confidence.

A lot of the mishaps when drawing and painting comes with self doubt and even the fear of picking up a pencil. We all have the ability to draw and all have the ability to express. I like to think that I am part of that process in guiding you through to awaken the potential of drawing and painting.

If you are interested in some basic lessons and ongoing group activity, then get in contact with meI have been a practicing artist and designer for many years now and have a wealth of experience in the field. I have also taught night school group sessions and workshops on the subject in a non-vocational setting.

I also do private tuition if there is anything specific you want to work on. I charge £20 per hour for private sessions.
