Art Classes

I’m delighted to announce that ART CLASSES have arrived in Hartfield and Coleman’s Hatch, East Sussex

Classes are held on a fortnightly basis with breaks for the holidays.


Hartfield – Tuesdays 10am – 12 noon, Hartfield Village Hall, TN7 4AA. First class in 2020 starts on Tuesday 14th January

Coleman’s Hatch – Tuesdays 10am – 12 noon, Trinity Hall, Coleman’s Hatch, TN7 4HF. First class in 2020 starts on Tuesday 21st January


Coleman’s Hatch – Wednesdays 6 – 8pm, Trinity Hall, Coleman’s Hatch, TN7 4HF. First class in 2020 starts on Wednesday 15th January

Class content
The classes are predominantly painting and drawing, and depending on people’s preferences we can also explore clay, carving in plaster and so much more. The classes 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.

Everyone is welcome to work at their own pace with sessions spread over several classes. The aim is to 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 are provided for everyone to use and painting materials and paper are available to buy for very reasonable prices. For your first class you do not need to bring any materials with you – they can all be provided. There is also no commitment to attend the whole term – you are free to attend as many classes as you wish, start coming along to classes at the beginning or half way through the term – just keep me informed of your plans.

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. Once registered as an Art Class member, let me know whether you would like to be a drop in person or a regular attendee and you can come along as many classes as you wish.

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

Very best wishes
