I am not sure about you, but I do not make a new years resolution as the chances of remembering what it is, is pretty slim. But what I do always tell myself throughout the year, as well as watching out for others, is to be as creative as I can in whatever way I can. This keeps me in a positive frame of mind, despite what is going on a round me. This does not mean I switch off from world issues, or disasters, but enables me to function in a worthwhile way.

So the studio has had a revamp ready for a new term. All courses will be running, with a few remaining places for the late bookers......you know who you are! Away courses are pretty well planned......I am off to Jersey for a few days of teaching which will be fun and the wedding dress is in its early stages of being made. Ah did I tell you we are having a wedding here in May......my son Toby and his girlfriend Charlotte are getting married. So my creative programme is well in place for the start of 2020. I hope yours is too?

A few deposits on courses are still outstanding, so please confirm your place as soon as you can so I know what is still left. Here are the current remaining course places.

Moor Art 2
£210 for 6 sessions

Art courses offering insight into innovative art projects, exploring many ways of using techniques/media, through drawing and painting.

This term we will be examining the idea of the 'grid' not only in relation to the structured approach that the grid offers but also to abstract and experimental alternatives as can be seen in the works of a number of artists, such as Paul Klee, Sean Scully, Bridget Riley, Hans Schimansky to name but a few.

Critique of work, artist research, lively discussion are essential parts of each session.  Course is suitable for all levels of ability and for those working in different art disciplines.
If you feel concerned about committing to the full course try and get along to the first session to see if you like us and what we are doing. Individual session costs £50, but will be adjusted if you wish to stay for the full course.
