After 12 years in Salisbury teaching life drawing and portraiture, I’m moving on , and making  a new home in Saintes, France. I have found really good people to continue the Salisbury classes.

Bishop Wordsworth’s School

The two hour portrait and lifedrawing evening classes for adults will continue with Tanya Gaffney-Greetham. Contact her on 07456 057682. These classes are suitable for both beginners, and the more experienced artist. Tuition is tailored to each student, helping to develop their observational skills whilst retaining individual style. Portrait classes have a different sitter each week, and the Lifedrawing class uses a variety of models. The classes are held during school term times, the Lifeclass on a Monday evening and the Portrait class on Wednesday evenings. Both are 7pm to 9pm and prices are £13 per session. The dates for next term are…

Lifeclass   Sept 11th to Oct 16th  6 weeks £78 - Half Term – Nov 1st to Dec 11th  6 weeks £78

Portrait  Sept 13th to Oct 18th  6 weeks £78 - Half Term – Nov 3rd to Dec 13th 6 weeks £78



On Tuesday afternoons at Laverstock Village Hall there is a more relaxed general art class. These are even tea and biscuits! Here you can paint or draw using whichever medium you chose, and there is always time to socialise with friends. Most work from photographic references, but there is always a still life set up to challenge the adventurous. These classes run through most of the year. In the summer months they are replaced by art workshops … for example  looking at specific subjects or aspects, like reflections and shadows, or pastel painting techniques. There are usually a couple of outdoor opportunities (weather permitting). Last year it was the Laverstock community farm, and the gardens at Little Durnford Manor. The Laverstock classes are from 2.00pm to 4.30pm and cost £8 per session. They will continue with Fiona Forbes… contact 01980 862368.
