Drawing, mixed media & creativity classes
I aim to give you space and encouragement, in a supportive and comfortable environment, to develop your creativity and skill at your own pace. While teaching you the basic techniques and guidelines for drawing, I also help you to work to your strengths and natural talents. I don’t want to try changing you from a Picasso to a Michelangelo; I want to guide you towards finding your own genius within you.
Casual weekly classes: R150 per class, materials included.
Tuesday evenings 6-9am / Thursday mornings 9am-12noon
These classes include the following:
- Small experimental drawings and sketches to practice your technique.
- Larger, more time-consuming drawings completed during a class or consecutive classes.
- Introduction and explorations in line, texture, shape, tonality and colour in drawing.
- Experimentation with different materials and techniques.
- Still life, drawing from life, portraiture and landscape drawing.
Each class is facilitated with the same basic structure, however the presentation will be unique. Every week we focus on something different, unless you have something you’re continuing from the previous session. These classes are informal and the outcomes based on your own interest, progress and amount of effort. I facilitate and encourage, and make creative and technical suggestions to guide you in your own process.
I aim to keep my workshops fun, explorative and informal, and I try to be supportive in the way I guide you while encouraging your own inherent creativity.
Structured workshops and mini-courses
I often have full-day workshops and mini courses that consist of weekly sessions over 4-8 weeks. Join my mailing list for updates.
For these workshops and courses booking & payment is essential – Limited space is available, with individual attention and guidance a focus within all workshops, making it suitable for beginners who want to learn a new art form or medium, as well as experienced artists who want to further develop their skill or expand their medium. Full payment confirms your booking. If you are unable to attend, after paying, you are welcome to attend the next workshop, but payment for the workshop is non-refundable.
I also offer:
- Small group classes
Group classes are a great opportunity to meet others and to share and learn together. I keep classes small to ensure that each person gets enough personal guidance. Contact me for details about the next drawing group class or workshop.
- One-on-one private tutoring
If you don’t like the idea of joining a class and think you’ll thrive under my undivided attention, this is the class for you.
- Special events & drawing parties
Want to do something different for this year’s birthday party? Want to do a drawing class as a team-building exercise? Contact me to set up a meeting to discuss your requirements and the possibilities.
