AUTUMN TERM - A 5 Week Course​


Term starts Tuesday 22nd September 2020


Last day of term: Tuesday 20th October 2020


 10am - 12.15pm​




Drawing and painting with colour should always be an utterly joyful experience, but often it's a cause for hesitation, even concern to some artists - we want to help fix that!


Illustrator and Artist (and new Co-Director of the HSA!) Holly Surplice is here to help unravel and banish the fear around working with colour. Let her encourage you to embrace the vibrance, using different mediums within your work, adding greater depth, feeling and above all confidence!


The course runs for 5 weeks and will see you working with a range of different subject matters - from life-models to wildlife-models (that's right, LIVE animals), abstraction and botanicals. Come to the Studio, explore and connect with colours that speak to YOU and allow yourself to feel emboldened by your own expressive use of this joyous, creative element.


Over this 5 week course can have a go using a variety of wet and dry medium, all of which will be provided to you by the school.


Age 17+ (no exceptions)


Places are non-refundable and non-transferable.


Covid 19 precautions:


For now, these classes will not have more than 6 students per group - in accordance with social distancing, we need to make sure there will be enough space between easels, tutor and model to ensure we adhere to the safest possible guidelines.  The studio will provide masks, hand steriliser and of course: good old fashioned soap and water.  We will have sterilising wipes on hand to wipe everything down and we, as a school, will be hyper vigilant in making sure all equipment as well as the studio is cleaned diligently after each class/studio use.
