Art Classes

I’m delighted to announce that ART CLASSES are coming to Hartfield and Coleman’s Hatch.


Starting in October 2019 they will be held on a fortnightly basis with breaks for the holidays.

Day classes – Tuesdays 10am – 12noon, Hartfield Village Hall, TN7 4AD (first Class on 8th October)
Evening classes – Wednesdays 6 – 8pm, Trinity Hall, Coleman’s Hatch, TN7 4HF (first Class on 9th October)

What will we be doing?
The classes will be predominantly painting and drawing, and depending on people’s preferences we can also explore clay, carving in plaster and so much more. I am envisaging that the classes will encompass still life (using contemporary as well as traditional objects), themed classes (such as focusing on painting genres or techniques) and if people are keen we can move outdoors when the weather is fine and embark on landscape painting. Life drawing/painting is an option too, if people are happy to pay for a model.

For the first classes in October we will start things gently with a traditional still life…..may be pumpkins….

Everyone is welcome to work at their own pace with sessions expected to be spread over several classes. The aim to is create a relaxed, happy creative place. We can discuss famous art works, share news about upcoming exhibitions and possibly have an exhibition of our own at the end of the year to celebrate everyone’s achievements.

Cost and materials
The fee is £12 per class and I really hope this is manageable for all. Easels and drawing boards will be provided for everyone to use and painting materials and paper will available to buy for very reasonable prices. There is no commitment to attend the whole term – you are free to attend as many classes as you wish.

Sign Up as an Art Class Member
Please contact me if you wish to sign up as an Art Class member and I’ll provide more information including a schedule for the content of the classes (which will be updated throughout the year) and the materials required. Although it is always helpful to know numbers for each class, once registered as an Art Class member, there is no absolute need to book – on the spur of the moment arrivals will be welcome – although you might well want to check first what we are working on!

Thank you for your time taken in reading this and I look forward to seeing you in creative mode on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Best wishes
