If you ever wished you could draw- but believe that you just can’t, this is the course to change all of that.

I believe everyone has a creative side, even if it’s deeply buried. It’s just a matter of relaxing & tapping into that. During this introduction course, following simple GUIDED steps, and a FUN approach you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve in a short time. You will build confidence, and who knows where your new found drawing freedom will take you. There are plenty of follow on courses that you might then feel inspired to join and enjoy, including my specific follow on drawing course. All materials are provided on this course, just bring an open and eager mind.

 “Long held memories of school art class left me feeling inadequate. Still, Ive wanted to learn to draw for ages now, and plucked up the courage to come to you Katharine. Im glad I did. I NEVER expected that after your first lesson Id be so chuffed (& proud)… Id want to take my piece home and frame it! Thrilled. A P

I was nervous about doing an art class, I wasnt good at it when I gave up at school over 40 years ago.  This was the perfect class to get me started.  Kath was warm and welcoming and set us to work immediately drawing around our hands and explained step by step how to create a 3d effect, we then copied some simple patterns from a handout.   She takes nothing for granted and talks us through new techniques and is happy to answer questions.  I thoroughly enjoyed the class and went on to do the follow on class MC

Qualifying with a BA Hons from Edinburgh College of Art, and Post Graduate Diploma from The London College of Furniture, my initial working life involved developing design & business skills at an interiors company in London. Later, self employment had me fulfilling creative briefs in illustration, small business logos, and occasional portrait drawing. Concurrently, commissions for domestic interiors grew, and over 23 years I built a successful interior design & decoration business, based largely in London.
More recently, a long held desire to concentrate on my own creative ideas had me return North, progressing my art and sculpture activities. Currently represented at a small gallery in the North East, fulfilling private commissions, and thrilled to be building this new chapter.
It’s exciting being part of Rossett Adult Learning - a really happy piece of life’s creative jigsaw - a lovely opportunity to share in artistic enthusiasm, and such a pleasure… meeting my students!
