During this course we will explore ways of applying composition theory in your work to achieve deliberate balance, harmony, movement and depth in your drawings and paintings. Focussing on a different medium and genre each week, we will explore the different possibilities for composing your work with purpose, whilst improving your observational drawing and painting skills.

Please note: My online workshops will run exactly as a face to face session does. I encourage each attendee to use their own individual subject matter for personal and unique end results. I will demonstrate adaptable techniques and processes in chunks, and guide you individually through your artwork. There is not an accompanying video for the workshops, as there is enough time in the sessions to complete the work.
The online courses are a little different in that there are videos for each lesson and an accompanying Facebook group that runs for double the duration of the course.
For all online classes and courses, you will need:
- To be able to print out your own images or use your own reference imagery/ objects. I will provide guidance on this when you book.
- You will need to use Zoom. There is no additional cost for this, but you may need to install an app.
- For courses you will need to use Facebook. You can create a profile just for this purpose if needed. Please ask if you need advice with this.
- To provide your own materials. I may have materials packs available to purchase though, with everything you need.
