StartART

“A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” – Colin Powell

Costs, claims and warnings

  • YES! You can draw and paint! I will show you.
  • StartART is on offer at £199, down from £400. I am proud of these courses that will teach you to see, draw and begin to paint.
  • I do believe my way of teaching is unique – you will come away with a real sense of your own style forming, this is not a class where you are only drawing one thing in one way, these classes are generic and will allow you to draw ANYTHING in to the future.
  • After drawing comes painting. If you just want to paint, this course is not for you.
  • StartART – is what you need to start your creative journey and show you that YES! You can draw.
  • Click here to see some endorsements for my teaching, in class and online.
  • Warning! StartART demands your time and commitment. It is hard work, but the rewards are huge; I promise you.
  • There is no deadline for you to complete the course, but I would suggest give yourself maximum 3 months as this will propell you forwards at a good pace and keep you motivated. There is always so much to learn, so keep at it.

Summing up StartART

  • StartART will teach you to draw. Then it will teach you how to paint.
  • StartART will NOT teach you your style, we will work on that as you go. I don’t believe in teaching style. I do believe in giving the right tools in the right order so that students have a thorough grasp of the basic techniques. THEN you can work on style and I will help you.
  • StartART comprises ten detailed step-by-step assignments that build on one another, 5 each for drawing and watercolours
  • You will start with the core techniques I have devised over the years that guarantee you will learn to draw as well as you can and confidently start to paint in watercolours
  • Lots of my visual examples accompany each assignment
  • Easy to follow instructions written in a constructive and approachable language with loads of tips, hints and extras as you go
  • A materials list is given for each course
  • Telephone or Zoom personal in-depth feedback sessions at the end of the Drawing Level One (DL1), and Watercolours Level One (WCL1); we will talk comprehensively about your work on the ‘phone or Zoom, if you are overseas we will talk by Skype or Zoom
  • StartART will teach you to SEE, leave you feeling confident in your own creative abilities and give you a sense of achievement and pride.
  • You will start to develop your own style by the end of the course; this is my USP, my strength is that I know I can bring out your own artistic style.
  • StartART is very much a personal experience with huge flexibility to work when you want to, anywhere in the world

  • When you have finished the Drawing course (DL1) you will send me images of your work by attachments by email.
  • Once I have received your work by email, we will talk on the ‘phone, skype or Zoom at a mutually convenient time. This will be an in depth and personal session, at least an hour long.
  • You will then move on to Beginning Watercolours (WCL1) – as before you will send me images of your work when you have completed the whole course.
