A charming new venue for painting classes

Back in May, when it became clear that the future of the Lothbury Centre remained uncertain, I decided to move my classes to the Old Reading Room, still in Weston Colville.

This week saw the start of these classes, " Painting for Pleasure " and Portrait Painting. I am delighted to say that lots of my students from the Lothbury decided to make the move as well, so it really was like meeting up with old friends.The new setting for the classes is really charming with lots of character, from great arching timber beams and fireplaces to excellent modern facilities.

Our model for the portrait class was Lin, resplendant in Edwardian costume. Shades of Whistler and Singer Sargent!

All in all, it was a very pleasant and relaxed day. An excellent start to a new term in our new home.

These particular classes are fully booked this term. Anyone wishing to enrol for the January term ,however, should either e mail me at or tel. 01284 810 460
