Make your own magic!

Wow, we are already halfway through 2016! This is the last call for the Creative Leap course starting this weekend. Join in this month long course to recharge your creativity and find ways to make your own magic...

Creative Leap Online Course

If you can write, you can draw! 
The course is suitable for all kinds of artists and designers with any age or experience. I'm currently working on the creation of a Creative Leap publication, a workbook or creative guide of sorts, so this is the last time the course will be run with video demonstrations and a closed classroom group on Facebook.

So join in; escape some of the madness of this world and make your own magic! 

Register now and receive a £20 discount to spend on a brand new sketchbook or treat yourself to some art materials. 

Not sure if it is for you? Here's some feedback from members of the February group:

'I’ve loved every project in Creative Leap. You’ve encouraged us to observe, manipulate shapes, think about colour and texture and see endless possibilities in familiar objects. I now realise it’s good to experiment and make mistakes as negatives can so often become positives.'
Wendy Phillips

'This course is wonderfully balanced and productive..... and exactly what I needed right now. I am especially grateful to you for reawakening my joy in drawing, plus so much else. Many ideas to pursue.'
-Anne Howard 

Course fee now £75 including the £20 discount.

Art in Action

This wonderful event happens again from 14-17 July at Waterperry Gardens close to Oxford. Come along to this unique and vast art fair, a wonderful day out for anyone interested in art, craft and creativity in the wider sense. Over the four days I will be one of the artists in residence, demonstrating techniques and materials I use in my practice as painter. I am really looking forward to be part of this energetic, vibrant event.

Explore Colour - The Still Life Course

In September 2015 Chaos to Calm was launched as an alternative still life painting course with a strong emphasis on colour and painting techniques. This online painting course is available again in a new format, altered slightly to offer more time for different projects, and more emphasis on developing individual styles. 
Explore Colour - The Still Life course will run from 5 to 26 September.
Cost for this course is £185 and an early bird discount of £25 off will apply until 9 July.

There is so much to explore with Golden's Professional paints. The A-Z full set of 30 paints and mediums in generous sample sizes will be used to create a variety of creative combinations  and brand new techniques to explore and enhance  artistic expression. This course is happening early 2017 and more details will be available by September on
