Tuition & Workshops
I teach regularly at my studio in Bungay. With a maximum group size at any one session of just 4 students, I am able to offer lots of individual attention to help you develop your potential as a figurative artist. Individual students work at their own rate on subjects of their choosing. My aim is to enable and encourage the development of keener observation and practical drawing and painting skills - based on a solid foundation of tried and tested "classical" techniques. We cover a range of valuable subjects including, learning to see 'usefully', colour theory, technical pencil and brush skills, perspective, composition etc. - all in the practical context of making great paintings.
Studio teaching days are on Tuesdays. There are three sessions - 10.00 am to 12.30 pm, 2.00 to 4.30 pm and 6.00 to 8.30 pm. I supply tea, coffee and biscuits! I also have a large library of art books and a large stock of art materials for those students who are unsure what to buy for themselves or wish to investigate something new. This is a working studio and there will always be examples of my current work or other projects and, although I don't encourage students to copy my style or subject matter, will always demonstrate specific skills or techniques where this will help.

Sessions are bookable in blocks of 6 sessions. The cost per block of 6 sessions, per student is £120. If you need to miss a session for any reason, I will do my best to fit you in at an alternative session - or join me on another day when I am working in the stuidio. My Tuesday teaching sessions take priority in my annual schedule. If I need to cancel for any reason, I will arrange a mutually convenient replacement date.
If you are only able to book a limited number of individual sessions in any block - the cost is £25 per session per person.
