About the Course
Classes are held in the idyllic setting of Clock Barn Hall on the outskirts of Godalming on Wednesday's. Classes are fun and friendly, a place to learn and make new friends.
There are 3 hour morning and afternoon classes to fit in with student’s schedules. You receive tuition and guidance from our excellent tutors allowing you to produce beautiful art using a variety of mediums over a 14 week period.
We start with pencil drawing, setting the building blocks of skills for the course. We then work with charcoal, coloured inks, pastels both soft and oil, watercolours & acrylic paint as well as other mediums. The principles of drawing and painting are progressively practiced with techniques and subjects such as landscapes, still life, figure drawing and portrait.
Classes are suitable for beginners & improvers.
Our classes have an high returners rate, students return to hone their skills, learn new skills, chat with friends & enjoy a sense of community.

A very instructive and enjoyable experience for me. I have particularly liked the variety of medium as I am a beginner in most of them.
Shivana and Emily are very approachable and helpful

I'm on my third term and loving the time I set aside for me. The classes are excellent, giving the student a chance to explore with mediums you may not have considered using before. There are lots of little tricks to learn from the fabulous tutors and usage of some household products you'd never think of applying to art. I have made friends on this course and have found everyone to be so supportive and such fun to be around. Most highly recommended!

I haven't painted since school and it took me a while to enjoy the sessions feeling very critical of my efforts. Emily and Shivani were supportive and constructive so that halfway through the first term I was enjoying it and much happier with my artwork. I'm now in term 2 and really learning new skills in an enjoyable way. They have varied the format and subjects so this doesn't feel at all repetitive

Excellent course. I’m on my third term and each term is slightly different. You are taught the basics but you are allowed to develop your own style. I’m ok at some things and dreadful at others but never made to feel bad. Good variety throughout the course. Lovely people. Altogether a fabulous way to spend an afternoon or morning. Time flies.

This course is wonderful, I cannot recommend it enough. I have learned so many techniques in terms of watercolour, acrylics, charcoal, graphite, using inks and pastels as well as understanding composition. Our tutor is a talented artist and each lesson is meticulously planned. All materials are provided, and the organisation of each class is exceptional. I look forward to each class knowing that I will learn something new and it has reignited my passion for art. If you are looking to spend a relaxing and fun two hours learning and creating then this is the course you should attend. Ten out of ten for the course organiser and the artist. It’s just brilliant!
