Weekly Classes online

Due to Covid19 and the need for social distancing, I am currently running all my classes online via Zoom.

I hope to start face-to-face lessons again soon and will email everyone on my list re classes and workshops once these are arranged.

Fundamentals of Watercolour

This class will only run with sufficient numbers enrolled. Please let Guy know if you are interested.

The classes are small and friendly and every student gets individual tuition tailored to their own experience and ability.

All classes are suitable for beginners and continuing students, as well as artists wishing to do more advanced work.

The emphasis is on painting in watercolour with all its varied techniques.   

It is possible to start at any time and join for the rest of that term, if there is a place available.

As numbers are limited, please let Guy know as soon as possible if you would like to secure your place.   There is normally some flexibility to enable you to attend make-up classes if required, depending on space.

Unfortunately there can be no discount or refund for missed lessons, including planned periods away.
