This course continues to explore different aspects of nature and landscape painting.  Each week will see the students improving on the painting skills they have gained previously and learning a variety of techniques whilst exploring different subjects and themes. 

 Being amongst nature is one of the most inspirational places to be and is a wonderful stimulant of our senses.  Whether it be outdoors or in the studio using media as our reference, landscape painting using acrylics, is a wonderful way of developing a greater understanding of layering, colour, texture, perspective and composition.  These paintings can take on any style the artist wishes and can be an accurate or abstract representation of the subject. 

 This course will give students the opportunity to improve their skills, experiment with different styles and take on new challenges. Interacting with other artists in a studio environment, is interesting, inspirational and important for personal, artistic development.  Paintings produced can be taken home weekly or at the end of the course

I have studied different aspects of Art most of my life and see the world from a creative perspective. My early days studying Art and Design at college allowed me to focus on the thing in life I love most and inspired me to further my passion for art. Studying for my Bachelors and Masters degrees gave me the opportunity to turn this passion into a lifelong career. They gave me the knowledge and creative skills to fully understand, not only the practical side of this subject, but also the theoretical side. I have participated in shows, seminars and exhibitions, which have helped me learn that whilst working independently, creating alongside others is hugely inspirational.

To teach art is to help each student on their own artistic journey, whilst gaining confidence and inspiration from others around them. I believe that through the process of observing, drawing and painting a subject, the students discover new ways of seeing it and can translate that into an innovative piece of artwork. The natural environment is a wonderful place to study, stimulating our senses and thinking about a more conceptual way of viewing nature. This might be portrayed using a naturalistic representation or a more abstract approach.

Most of all I am an enthusiastic, compassionate, and fun teacher who loves people and all things ART! I love being creative and helping others to find their artistic direction, freedom and inspiration in a studio or outdoor environment. Each student’s personal journey is my focus, ensuring they soak up every creative minute and leave wanting more.
