Expressive Abstract and Imaginative Compositions 

With Celia Forestal Smith


This is a 12 week course with one week’s break in between. There is however the option of just doing 6 weeks if that is your preference. 


It will be an exciting course in which we will be working with themes often occurring in dreams and memories using the imagination to create sketches and one large painting. A combination of Abstract and Figurative.


We will be using drawing materials such as pencils, oil pastels, ink, and acrylic paints. Techniques such as layering paint, collage, mono prints, and gelli plate printing.


As well as using brushes, we will use unconventional tools to experiment with, such as bowl scappers, squeegies, brushes tapped to long sticks etc. in order to loosen up and free up!


Come and join the fun this Autumn!

Studio Practice Course

With Kenneth Le Riche

This 10-week course on Thursdays invites individuals who are already creating their own work to develop and expand their art practice under the guidance of an experienced tutor and practising artist, Kenneth Le Riche.

This is a practical course that will be structured around students continuing their own work whether that be drawing, painting, and/or mixed media. There will be individual tutorials which aim to identify the essence and direction of each student’s practice and devise strategies to take it forward.  The course will provide students with critical feedback on their work, introduce new practical skills and advice on how to push their work further. Ideas and aesthetics will be explored while developing elements of composition such as line, tone and colour. New materials and methods will be introduced and the course can also advise on developing an art school portfolio where necessary. There will be seminars and PowerPoint presentations relevant to the students’ work.


The studio will be equipped with a range of core materials for students to use; including pencils, graphite sticks, willow charcoal, compressed charcoal, chalk, ink, pastels, acrylic paints, oil paints, solvents, binders, pigments, and paper. Easels and drawing boards are also provided. Participants may also wish to bring any additional materials of their choice. 

Refreshments and snack lunch included.

Course fee: £400 Private course
