Some exciting news and arty happenings

Explore Colour: The Still Life Course. 
In just over two weeks' time, the next online art course will start. This five week long course is the only ecourse I will be offering for 2017 as I have several exhibition commitments and am working on the completion of an art book I'm currently writing.

The Still life Course is jam packed with content to explore different aspects to extend an artist's practice, including alternative drawing exercises, use of colour and composition as well as the development of different painting techniques using acrylic paints and mediums.

The course will run from 5 June until 10 July with an additional 5 weeks access to offer students a bit more time to revisit projects.

The course costs £195  Signing up is on the Explore Colour website
