'Art works' began in 2004, the ethos is to encourage experimentation by trying out various forms of visual art and then develop areas of particular interest. The classes are therefore suitable for beginners who would just love to ‘have a go’ but often feel too intimidated for fear of their own perceived inability.

The art classes are relaxed and FUN! They are limited to 12 per class to allow me to give the attention needed to teach properly. Although I teach as a group I recognise the needs of each of you as individuals with different levels of confidence and ability.

Field trips in Kent and life models can be organised but this is first discussed with the class, as extra costs would be incurred. There may also be extra fees for some materials but I try to keep this to a minimum and it is also dependent on what discipline you want to develop.

"Anyone can enjoy the act of making art, not all will be the next Picasso or Rembrandt but why should that stop you from having fun and creating."

One day taster or two day workshops focussing on the figure and portrait. Aimed at beginners. You will learn how to apply the clay, measure correctly and look at basic key anatomy. You will be taught how to 'see' more efectively and notice 'high points' within different planes. you will be shown how to use the tools to model your portrait. We will discuss what makes a likness and look at diifernt finishes. Hopefully you will become hooked like me.

The classes are limited to a maxium of 5 so you will have lots of 1-1 attention. You will be provided with your own adjustable sculpture stand, a bag of clay, the use of my tools and a bust peg (extra fees apply to take the peg home)
The studio is set in the Kent countryside a few Miles from Maidstone with far reaching views of the weald, it is an ideal location to get away and be creative. (please contact me for local accommodation)
