There is a parent's evening on at the school tomorrow and rather than use our usual entrance near Papa John's the school would like us to assemble at the blue doors in front of the old school building. Just to help everyone out I am posting a photo of the blue doors on Cheltenham rd. See you all tomorrow!
As I have a key to let myself in I'm still aiming to run the class at Horfield Parish Church tomorrow but will post an update Thursday morning to be sure.
What to do it if it snows......
If there's any snow over the next few days and it looks as if a class may be cancelled there will be an announcement on this page. It's in the nature of these things that a decision often has to be made quickly but it can take a while to get the message to everyone so the fastest way to find out is to keep an eye on this blog post. If it snows at any point and the class is just about to start in an hour or so I will probably try and run it, depending on the forecast. It's worth bearing in mind that sometimes schools have to make a decision fairly early on in the day as to whether to open or not. It may be that later on in the day the weather is fine but the school will be closed because of this and I won't be able to run the class as there is nobody to let me in. Generally speaking I try and follow what the schools are doing so if it looks as if the majority of schools will be closed in Bristol I do the same. If you're living outside of Bristol and it's snowy but Bristol itself is clear I will run the class. At the moment crunch day looks possibly to be Thursday.
From the 23rd of April I'll be running a new art class for adult beginners in South Bristol at Holymead Primary school. As with the other evening classes that I run the class will last for 9 sessions and cost £69 which includes all materials.
I've been running art classes in the North Bristol area for over 20 years now and have always had a lot of interest in the South Bristol area but obviously it's a long distance to have to travel so there should be plenty of interest.
As with all of the art classes that I run the first step is to contact me, either by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 0117-9396584
Thanks for visiting this website. As well as giving an overview of a different technique each week I usually give a short presentation that will introduce to you an art historical term or two, the work of an artist or the history behind a particular material. Nothing too long, but it's a good way of giving people a break and people generally find it quite helpful. For more check out my other website www.lifedrawingclasses.co.uk I also have another wordpress blog www.beginnersartclasses.wordpress.com which contains information related to my past experiences as a tutor and some of the artists I've found and hope you will find inspirational I'll also be posting some stuff here so keep popping back every couple of weeks and I'll try and get some new stuff for you to look at.
