Art Classes

Art Classes in Dumfries, Scotland and in France.

I love to share the enjoyment that comes from engaging in creative activity, and encouraging others to explore drawing and painting as a means of self expression and personal development.

My classes are person centred and individual, tailored to the requirements of the student. I have experience of over 30 years with a variety of media, including pencil, charcoal, pastels, watercolour, acrylic and oil painting, all of which are available to students.

Classes are held in both Dumfries and France, and are always on a pay as you go basis rather than blocks, allowing greater flexibility. Generally the classes in Dumfries are not residential, but accommodation can be arranged for students who wish to travel from outside our region.

Classes in France.

Students need have no previous art experience, a programme of classes can be arranged for any level of ability, and families with children over 10 can also participate. We have 2 double and one twin bedroom with shared bathroom, and guests can choose a fully catered option, or take their evening meal in a local restaurant. We love to share the house and garden, and you will be encouraged to relax as if you were at home. Classes are small, usually just up to 3 students, so if you book as a group of 3 you only be sharing with our family.

Free time.

Classes are held for two hours in the morning, and there is an option of either 2 more hours in the afternoon, or the evening if preferred, leaving free time to enjoy a long lunch, a sieste or an outing to explore the local area.
