Art Classes

Classes are up and running in Hartfield and Coleman’s Hatch, East Sussex. See below for more information and contact Alison

Classes are held as follows (please contact me for a list of class dates):


Tuesdays 10am-12 noon, Hartfield Village Hall, High Street, Hartfield, East Sussex, TN7 4AA

Wednesdays 10am-12 noon, Trinity Hall, Shepherds Hill, Colemans Hatch, Hartfield TN7 4HF


Wednesdays 6-8 pm, Trinity Hall, Shepherds Hill, Colemans Hatch, TN7 4HF

Class content
The classes are predominantly painting and drawing, and depending on people’s preferences but we 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) as well as life drawing/painting with 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 we aim to have an exhibition of our own at the end of the year to celebrate everyone’s achievements.

Cost and materials
The fee is £16 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.
