Art Group/Classes  –  see current dates

Up until Covid, I ran a small drawing class. My hope is that I’ll be able to start up another group or two.

The type of tuition you will receive will be akin to that taught in an art college rather than quick short cut routes to painting individual elements or objects. Within this there will be elements of painting where and when appropriate, art appreciation and the possibility of going out on drawing trips as a group.

My aim is to provide you with the tools to go out and make your own enquiries of the world around you whilst at the same time enjoying good company in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Please sign up to my mailing list to receive any information as and when available.

‘To make biological survival possible, Mind at Large has to be funnelled through the reducing valve of the brain and nervous system.  What comes out at the other end is a measly trickle of the kind of consciousness which will help us to stay alive on this particular planet…Most people, most of the time, know only what comes through the reducing valve and is consecrated as genuinely real by the local language.’

The Doors of Perception

 

Seek, study everything you see, subject everything to your brush, but learn to find the inner thought in everything, (and try most of all to comprehend the lofty mystery of creation)
