Courses

In addition to weekly after school Art Clubs, Treefrog Art runs drawing courses for adults and holiday sessions for children.

Learn to Draw: Upstairs at the Townhouse

(Currently suspended due to Covid restrictions)

A drawing course for adults on Thursday mornings from 9.30am-11.30am, which began in Autumn 2018. These sessions are suitable for beginners, as well as those who haven’t drawn for some time. Working in the upstairs bar at The Townhouse in a small , friendly group we consider line, scale, tone, gravity, depth, light and shade, and use pen, pencil, graphite, charcoal and ink to create drawings from observation.

£15 per session. Coffee or tea, served by The Townhouse, is included in the price.

Holiday sessions for young artists

(Currently suspended due to Covid restrictions)

In February half term 2018, I worked with a small group of 8-10 year olds at Petersfield’s Physic Garden exploring different ways of drawing from observation using pencil, charcoal, oil pastel, chalk and wax resist. Learning about scale, texture and quality of line, the children drew individually and collaboratively, being challenged to ‘really see’. In just three consecutive morning sessions everyone gained confidence in their drawing, and produced a lot of very impressive work.

I now regularly run holiday sessions at this beautiful venue for children of all ages.
