Weekly Classes 2019


Classes are held on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can choose to attend the full day, or just the morning or afternoon (specific times below), whichever suits you best.









I try to tailor to the individual, so classes are not formally structured. However, most weeks I give a short demonstration of a technique or an approach I’ve found useful, or have just been experimenting with. I will occasionally bring in works in progress.

The majority of your time will be given to drawing and painting,  and I will help you develop your own touch and style. Each week I will provide a variety of subjects to inspire you.


Larkhall Community Centre

19 Montgomery Street

Close to the M74, and a 5 – 10 minute walk from Larkhall train station, on a direct line from Glasgow.

The room is spacious and bright, but daylight lamps are available for the inevitable dull days.

There are four or five steps down to the room from the level of the lift.

Cancellations and refunds

If you find yourself unable to attend the course, I will refund the full amount provided you let me know at least 2 weeks in advance of the start of the session.

If for any reason I have to cancel a class (snow happens!), I will refund that day’s fees, and will do my best to let you know well in advance to save unnecessary travelling (this hasn’t happened yet, but I like to have a plan in place in case it ever does).
