Be Painterly or Go graphic July 24 – 30 2021
Cober Hill near Scarborough, Yorkshire.
This is a fun course where we look at two main ways of making paintings – more free and painterly and more controlled or graphic.
Cober Hill has come highly recommended and I am looking forward to my visit and the course after a year of nothing being possible face to face. I hope it will be the first of many at this lovely place.

Workshops in Italy
Sadly, my beloved centre d’Arte Verrocchio has fallen victim to the pandemic and for the next couple of years at least, it has been forced to close its doors for courses.
However, they are hoping to be able to offer atelier style accommodation on a DIY basis.
Please visit their website for the details so far.
Covid permitting I hope to be as usual there for the whole month of Septmeber 2021.
So if there is an opportunity for you to join me I would love to see you there. Please be in touch with Verrocchio directly to arrange this. Although not as it has been, I am sure we can still have a wonderful time in this fabulous place and enjoy working on our art together. Do contact me if you are thinking about it and I can explain more.
ONLINE COURSES AND CLASSES
In 2020 I trialed some pilot online classes and courses and am now happy to offer the following classes.
More of these ‘at your own pace’ classes and courses will follow as I develop my online programme.
Several times each year I will also offer online COURSES PLUS, where I work with a small group of up to 12 students as we go through the course together at specific dates.
These will be listed here.
