 Regular Painting Classes are held at Upwey Old School Village Hall. Term dates and times are shown below.


 At these classes you will get to try your hand at a whole selection  of art materials and techniques. From different types of  charcoal and graphite sticks, all types of paints,papers and brushes. Everything is provided.
















Out and  about

Occassionaly  trips are arranged so that the class can take place  on location. Previously we have sketched and painted on near by beaches at Portland and Sandsfoot cove. We have also visited local nature reserves.

We bring all the materials with us and have some lovely new sketching easels waiting for you.

 Of course, on all our trips we bring our cakes, coffee and tea with us.


 One of the things we sometimes do in the class is to look at famous paintings ( We project up images with a projector from a lap top so we can see them actual size and study them closely ), we then have a go at the techniques employed. We always demonstrate everything, so you can see first hand the methods and materials used.


13th September up to and including Friday 13th December
