This is the first newsletter of 2018.
There are two new courses starting this month – Watercolours for beginners and a Botanical workshop day (yellows) for beginners.
Watercolours ~ Beginners
6 Week Course
Saturday 10th February
9 am - 12 noon
Finishes Sat 17th March
This course is tailored for beginners to watercolours and covers simple techniques and tips to get you started. The subjects will be washes, skies, fields and perspectives, trees, stone and brickwork, windows and doorways. The lessons are developed at your own speed.
Botanical Art ~ Yellows ~ Beginners
1 Day Course
Saturday 24th February
10 am - 3.30 pm
I will have botanical art workshops throughout the year, starting with yellows for beginners. Yellow can be tricky to deal with so we will be painting a seasonal daffodil, having said that there probably won’t be any available! You will need to bring a packed lunch with you or there are two pubs in the village if you prefer a hot meal.
As some of you may already know, I am converting a garden building into an art studio and presentation room for my courses. This is a work in progress, we have gutted the inside, which filled a skip and this weekend we managed to fit the front door and window, hopefully we will have the side windows and guttering fitted next weekend.
There will be free parking near the studio once it is opened.
You can find testimonials for my art classes on my website as well as some examples of my art work, a map of the venue and an enquiry/booking form if you have any questions or would like to note an interest in one of my course.
Since I have moved back from Devon to East Sussex I seem to be having trouble with my website appearing in searches for ‘art classes’, ‘garden design courses’, ‘botanical art classes’ or ‘nature walks’ etc…. although I am appearing in the Yell Ads and on google and bing maps. It will of course come up if you put in the website title, in the left border.
Not sure why I am not coming up on the search engines and will be contacting my website provider this week. Fingers crossed they can fix it.
* Don’t forget there are Gift Certificates available for presents, which you can order from the website.
* If you cannot attend a course, then some are available as Distance Learning and I will be gradually adding to these.
* After the Easter Holidays in April there is a short Wildlife Garden Design course starting on the 7th April for those who just want to learn but not take an exam, the course will last 8 weeks, further details in the next newsletter.
Keep safe and happy learning
