Students at the Wednesday morning art class
Wednesdays 9.30 - 12.30 painting at Under the Edge Arts. Classes are designed to be enjoyable and informative for students with a range of skills and experience. Rob is a skilled craftsman with a great store of tips and information to share. He is also aware that people come to the class to relax and enjoy themselves as well as learn and the atmosphere is fun and welcoming. If you are a complete beginner who would love to have a go but are afraid of making a start in front of students with more experience then come and join this friendly and supportive group. One student commented........"I last did any serious painting when I was at school. One year ago I had the chance to fulfil a long-term desire to learn to paint. When I first joined Rob’s class I used watercolours but I found them very frustrating. However, when cleaning out a relative’s house I found some oil paints. I started to learn how to use them and discovered a love for colour and for experimenting with paint. Rob and the others in the class are very supportive. Having made a good start with my work I often got stuck, afraid to spoil what I had achieved in trying to make further progress. With Rob’s help I have learned to push past this point, I am no longer afraid to experiment or make mistakes. Learning to paint has opened up great pleasure for me and sparked off many ideas I want to try out. "
£90 for six sessions booked in advance. Students provide own materials.

Painting classes at Pegasus studios, Griffin Mill, Thrupp near Stroud. These classes run on the same basis as those in Wotton. The intention is for students to develop technical skill and gain the confidence to show their work in exhibitions and open studio events and develop an increasingly professional attitude to their work. There are currently two students preparing for one person exhibitions of their work in Cheltenham although part of the exciting learning enmvironment relies on the fact that there are beginners as well as more experienced students.
