Hello to 2020 – Happy New Year & welcome to your January newsletter –
I hope you had a wonderful festive break and are feeling happy, healthy and vibrant for the year ahead.
Do you make resolutions? Rather than resolutions I like to write a list of things I want to accomplish or develop in the year ahead. In 2020 I will be making more time for my own art work and joining a regular Life Drawing group at Paddock Art Studio. It doesn’t matter what ability you have, setting regular time aside to practice your creativity is the only way to maintain and develop your skills.
The Monthly Art Challenge will continue this year with the encouragement to visit exhibitions linked to the themes to help inspire your work. January is “Drawing lines”, and the exhibtion is David Nash at the Towner Gallery.
Most excitingly, classes start this month! The four-week drawing course starts on January 8th (a few places still left so please book) and you can now do the whole course (£50 for 4) or one-off sessions (£15 per session). One small change I need to make due to costs is that I will only be providing teaching materials for the class, you will need to bring your own sketchbooks and pencils.
Also – I will have my three month old baby with me and may need to feed her but hopefully she will behave and sleep through the class!
Private Classes: I offer private classes from my home on Thursdays.
A 2 hour session costs £35, £5 per additional person and I can take up to 4 people.
I hope 2020 is a wonderful year for you all and look forward to seeing you in a class.
