These immensely popular and usually fully booked sessions introduce the eager learner to the wonderful genre of painting traditional Landscapes using a wide range of mediums and techniques to achieve your desired result.

This is the best time of year for beginning your Botanical painting projects, under Barbara’s expert guidance and fabulous reference of seasonal flowers and foliage.  Every session Barbara brings a colourful array of blooms that are arranged in a decorative still life to be painted.

Barbara is a very experienced and patient teacher, she enjoys giving fun and informative demonstrations, sharing the tricks of the trade only with her class.

Lots of creative enjoyment is always had at these friendly sessions, working with other like minded learners is always inspirational and gives you the confidence to try new approaches in a positive and nurturing place.

Barbara has two sessions a week ( during term time which is the same as all East Sussex schools) Tuesday afternoons 1 pm – 3.30 and Wednesday mornings 10 am – 12.30 pm.
