The Arts School

Two years ago, whilst pregnant with my son and daydreaming about the future, I bought the domain name of The Arts School.

One year ago I met Sam and we had the idea to combine our ideas at her lovely space and The Arts School was born!

Its been a busy year and as we start our last round of 6 week drawing courses, and our one year exhibition I thought I would say thanks to everyone that has supported us, and tell all your friends about us!

It is a great privilege to teach what you love, in a beautiful space, with lovely people (and great food!)

If you are looking for a drawing class, there is still time to book:

Observational Drawing 6 week courses

Starting 5th June Tuesday evenings 7-9:30pm

Starting 7th June Thursday Mornings 10:30-13:30

Life Drawing:

Wednesday 13th June

Saturday 23rd June

I hope you enjoy some photos of the fantastic work created by our lovely students.

I will also be at Brighton Marina Market this Sunday if you want to come and say hello!

2018 – The Arts School

Wow! It’s been a long time since I posted and the reasons good!

The Arts School is up and running and I am loving teaching again! Now we start the new year with lots of courses and a new teacher working with us teaching watercolour (Jo Hudson).

Come and take a class and hopefully enjoy it as much as our past students (and we) do! www.theartsschool.co.uk

Losely house

Today I have lunch at Losely House in the Wisteria Tea rooms. followed by a wonder around the beautiful gardens. We did not booked onto a tour of the house this trip, but if you are going it is a great way to learn about the history of the house.

This morning

This morning met and followed the lovely Elise at Florescence

How it happened: Just over two years ago she made the mothers of the bride and groom flowers for my wedding. She did an amazing job and we kept in contact. I little while ago I asked her if I could follow her around and photograph her, and today it finally happened! Here is a little taste of some of the gorgeous images from the flower markets and her workshop. 

If you are getting married, or having an event, check out her website http://www.florescence.org

Unsuccessful experiments 

Today I tried a quick play with still life photography, it wasn’t very successful, but it is just a starting point. 

 

 I learnt:

  • Cats are not helpful, 
  • I have a large amount of dried petals from flowers from my husband which I need to do something with, anyone got any ideas please let me know!
  • I need to allow myself more time to set up and consider.

Thanks for reading!
