Cambridge Drawing Society Spring Exhibition

25 March to 1 April - 10am to 4pm - At the Pitt Building, Trumpington Street, Cambridge,
blog imageblog image

Springtime means a great art show at the Pitt Building by the members of Cambridge Drawing Society. This year there are 112 members plus 44 new candidates seeking to join them.

I am chuffed to have all 4 of my entries selected again. They are part of a series of small trees on canvas with coloured silver leaf. The photos show them framed. The actual paintings are 15 x 15cm and when framed measure 27cms.

The majority of the members help out with the exhibition by offering to unwrap the paintings, hang them, invigilate during the exhibition etc. This year I will help with portering, invigilating during the private view and counting up the left over greeting cards. I love helping out as it means I get to know the other artists.

If you are in Cambridge, do pop in and see the amazing work of selected artists living in a 20 mile radius of Cambridge - the standard is very high!

Note: When sending the photos for selection this year, we had to include a teaspoon to give an idea of size. I have used these photos so you have an idea of size.

Cambridge Art Classes

starting April 2023
blog imageblog image

Have you ever wanted to 'have a go' at painting and drawing and don't know how to start? I run classes to introduce you to all kinds of media and lots of different techniques to help you on your way.

The 10-week course includes a selection of the following: drawing in various media, painting with acrylics and watercolour, collage, and relief printing alongside some art appreciation. The classes are suitable for beginners wanting to try something new as well as those with more experience. These are relaxed classes led by me, a qualified art teacher.

The classes are small and fun with a maximum of four people which means lots of personal attention. They follow the group's own particular interest so each group is individual. They take place in my home studio at 309 Milton Road, Cambridge, CB4 1XQ. You are very welcome to visit and I can tell you more about the classes.

There are two classes:

Wednesdays 10am to 12.30pm - starting 19 April for 10 weeks

Thursdays 10am to 12.30pm - starting 20 April for 10 weeks

All materials are provided so everyone is using the same brand and colours and we can chop and change focus according to what the students are interested in.

Cost of the 10 sessions is £250, including all the materials.

To see more of the work my students do please see;

Lots of exhibitions coming up and I am very busy with several half finished paintings including this one.

Just about to work some magic into the books giving them some more details and I will probably have a few falling out of the shelves as they really are not very tidy!

After that I will cover the ground in flowers, add a moon and stars... and it should be complete. Maybe finished in a week or two.
