Students of all ages and abilities attend the classes which are small, informal and friendly. Your day will start with a general introduction to the topic of the day, followed by a group discussion or demonstration. Once you have 'got going' individual tuition will be provided. On full day workshops, students can eat out at the local pub. Workshops are currently held on Tuesdays, and there are Saturday workshops, 3 day courses, and 4 or 8 week courses.

You will be working inside and outside with subject areas related to still life, flower painting, landscape, and all aspects of drawing, colour and composition. When the weather is fine we work outside in the delightful surroundings of the studio, the nearby countryside, or in the gardens of Hatfield House.
Topic areas include painting techniques in a wide range of media including watercolour, acrylics, oils and mixed media. Much of what is taught is closely related to work in which Christine is currently involved - continually providing a fresh approach to the classes.
