A great one-day class on painting from life for beginners and advanced students alike. Tuition on the course is individual, therefore can be adapted to each students' needs. You will be given an introduction to oil and acrylic painting as well as learn how to approach a life study. The class will consist of one long pose with the model, divided in two sessions. To start, the focus will be on proportions and gesture, effectively learning how to draw with a brush. Next we will progress into understanding painting ‘alla prima’ to capture light and colour and give an accurate visual impression of the subject. By the end of the day you will have learned how to quickly represent the figure in paint through personalized instruction based on individual needs.

AUTHENTIC PUBLIC SPEAKING INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP/PRACTICE EVENING
with Daniel Kingsley

Whether you're someone who is anxious about public speaking or a confident speaker wanting to deepen your creativity and ability to connect deeply with an audience, these evenings offer something easy, simple, yet powerful. Using the Speaking Circles method developed in the USA and Europe over the past 20 years and working in groups of no more than 10 people and you'll come away with a different way of approaching the way you communicate in public.
Come and be surprised and delighted by a new way of speaking!
