an exciting programme of courses
PAINTING AT STANSTED
Life Drawing Classes are planned for the winter season starting on November 4th. The first of these is on the 4th November from 10-12 in the Blue Drawing Room at the cost of £20 per person for two hours of tuition from an experienced local teacher, Jules Roper. Jules teaches Art at Bishop Luffa School and has also taught Life Drawing at the Spring Arts Centre at Havant. Jules will offer individual guidance during the session, a direction to work on, or perhaps looking at a particular artist and their use of line and colour. She will also offer worksheets each session on either the basics of life drawing or more challenging ideas. She is happy to offer as much or as little guidance and instruction as people desire. We have 12 lightweight folding easels which can be borrowed but obviously with 18 people we will need some people to bring their own, attendees will need to bring their own materials: pencil, pastel and charcoal are all permitted.
Places are limited to 18 per session and people can either attend single sessions or all 5. The November 4th date is confirmed and it is hoped that the other dates (first Sunday of the month through to March) will go ahead if we have sufficient demand.
‘Sketching on Sunday’ will also take place from 10-1 on the same dates – this is £5 per person and is an opportunity to draw inside the house and to meet other sketchers. Refreshments are included at both these events.
