Cancellation of courses

Hi again

Due to the current Coronavirus situation all classes are cancelled from today onwards.

Bookings can still be made for the next term of courses starting Monday 20th April 2020 and the 1 day workshop on Monday 6th of April.  In the event of any cancellations your payment will be refunded in full.  I’m aware some people may understandably be waiting to see if the courses will run before booking a place.  However, if there aren’t enough people booked on the courses by the closing dates then I would need to cancel the courses anyway.  So I am advising people to book as soon as possible so that I can establish whether there will be enough people for the courses to run and, as mentioned, you would receive a full refund if they don’t run.  The closing date for the Aboriginal Pattern Workshop is 28th March 2020 and 10th April 2020 for all other courses.

The next term will be starting in April 2020.  There will be a one day Aboriginal Pattern Workshop on 6th April 2020 and the following courses will be starting in the week commencing Monday 20th April 2020: Beginners Birds Drawing Course 2, Beginners Portraiture Course Level 2 and “Places”-Beginners Mixed Media Course.  For further details on all these courses go to the “Courses for 2020” page.  Email me at:  leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or tel: 07788 871286 if you have any questions or would like to book a place.

In the meantime, stay safe and I hope to see you all soon.

Hi folks

In the Beginners Birds Drawing Course this week we created pictures of Herons using collage torn from magazines.  The Beginners Drawing Course Level 1 looked at scale and how to create tone in these enlarged drawings of natural forms.  In the Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1 we used both pencil and soft pastel to show tone when drawing noses.  There were a few challenges to face in all the courses this week but you handled them brilliantly and you are all improving every week.  Keep it up!

Beginners Courses – Week 1

Hi folks

It’s the first week of the new term and what a great start!  The Beginners Birds Drawing Course started us off with with some fantastic scraperboard drawings of starlings.  In the Beginners Drawing Course Level 1 we explored using different pencils and how to build up a picture of natural forms.  The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1 practised getting the proportions right as a good basis for a portrait.  Brilliant work everyone.  You all really threw yourselves into this first lesson and I’m looking forward to seeing how you all progress throughout the term.

See you all next week.
