  • Step by step lessons in drawing (negative spaces, perspective, tonal drawing, etc)
  • Beginner to advanced instruction in coloured pencil drawing
  • Work on your own projects (landscape, still life, animals, portraits, etc) in your choice of medium while learning new techniques under the guidance of a professional artist.

Enjoy working in our bright, natural-light studio in the beautiful village of Appleton. The friendly atmosphere and useful feedback from your fellow students make these sessions both fun and instructive.

Coffee/tea and snack are provided – a good chance to take a break, stretch your legs and see what your fellow students are working on!

Register early as classes are limited to six people.

“I have taken other art courses but never have learned so much as I have with Adrian. The classes are pleasant.  Adrian is kind and funny and supportive but at the same time, gently demanding in that one should try their best and push their personal limits. While I am in awe of such a fine and accomplished artist, her approach to her students is genuinely one of teacher: inspiration and simplicity. For any aspiring artist, spending time with Adrian is most inspirational and illuminating. Adrian makes me feel that I am an artist.”
