25th September 2021 A workshop with your choice of subject and your preferred medium.



A full day of exciting fun using Watercolour and Pastels pen, acrylic. its your choice. The aim is to make a plain painting come to life in a vibrant way.

This is not only for beginners but those who just want to challenge themselves in a new way. A still life painting with lots of life. Or any subject you want to paint.
I will send you home with a painting for your wall.

Also Young people over 13 years old

Regarding your questions if there is still a risk of covid transmission.
The studio is approximately 38ft x 18ft and all of you will have your own space at 6ft tables that are well spaced out. You will come in from an external separate door into a sunroom with the sliding doors open. The working area will have some of the 11 windows open if weather permits.
I will test your temperature on arrival and everyone would be asked to wear a mask at all times. There will be hand sanitises for use and you can scan a track and trace app if you have one on your phone. The room, toilet and kitchen facilities are covid compliant and are only used for my art courses. I have paper towels and hand sanitiser hand washing gel for your use. The studio and facilities are not only used as classes and are cleaned thoroughly before and after a workshop or class. If anyone wants to have drinks or food then they could go outside onto the patio are where there is seating. Any materials you use will of course be your own. The only thing I will provide tea, coffee, biscuits. I ask people to bring their own cups and lunch if they would prefer to. I am sure that this meets all safety precautions and that you do not have a need to worry unduly. Hopefully by the time of this workshop we will be free of this pandemic.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
