I have always found that painting is a great way to immerse yourself fully in creativity and I now love to share this rewarding experience with others by hosting my Paint Classes at Grange Gallery, Isle of Purbeck, Dorset. 

The class lasts around 3 hours and is the perfect introduction to painting, or for those that may not have painted since school,you will create your very own original canvas painting using acrylics. It is a great activity for groups, couples, family, friends, colleagues or if even if you wish to participate on your own - everyone is welcome.

The class is relaxed, distanced and gives you the chance to unwind and leave the world behind for a few hours. The class takes place at the Cedar Barn, Isle of Purbeck, we are a stones throw from the South West Coast Path home to the Jurassic Coast and very close to Kimmeridge Bay and Worbarrow Bay.

All materials and refreshments are included in the price, so all you need to do is bring yourself.

We are surrounded by countryside and if the weather is fair we paint outside, if not, we paint inside Grange Gallery which is light and airy with two sets of wide double doors that can fully open.

We begin the class each with a blank canvas in front of us, I'm at the front of the class with my blank canvas, alongside a painting that I completed earlier. 

I guide the class step-by-step how to recreate the completed painting on display at the front, I advise the colors to use, brushes, strokes and technique to achieve the style of the completed painting on display. 

We have a break half way through, with refreshments of teas, coffees, soft drinks and cake, after this we reconvene for the second half of the class. 

I always encourage everyone to freestyle if the wish, or of course stick to replicating the painting at the front, what I enjoy most is that we are all unique and have our different techniques and vision. 

It's amazing to see everyone's masterpieces at the end of the class, the class often inspires many of the participants to take up painting.

Everyone leaves the class with their finished painting and a complimentary Grange Gallery gift bag, please click here to view more pictures of previous paint classes.
