Road trip cont.


In Clanwilliam we stayed in a traditional Dutch thatched longhouse. The rooms were dark and cool and flag-stoned and had dark wood cupboards set into the walls - all of which were painted white, inside and out. The ceilings were boarded with big old dark wide boards and there was an enormous fireplace, like an old inglenook which isn't used any more but has lovely old cupboards built into it - even those must have been put in about 100 years ago so the building has probably seen many changes in its time. It's set in about an acre of the most eccentric garden, sort of mini stage sets through which you walk from one to the next.


About this site...
I am an art teacher living and working in Dorset.  I have taught for the Adult Education Service and the University of Bath, plus some supply teaching in my local schools but now I run all my classes and courses privately. This site is intended as an addition to my teaching, primarily for any student who in the week misses a class and wants to catch up.
The lessons are also available for any one anywhere who would like some ideas on what to teach, what to learn or is just interested in seeing what we do.
I'm afraid I won't be able to answer emails asking for comments on anyone's work (other than for currently enrolled students).
I teach three weekly art classes in halls in and around Blandford in Dorset and every six weeks or so I run a Sunday workshop in a village hall on the outskirts of Blandford. I also run a vibrant five-day summer school.. Other than that I spend every available moment in my studio or drawing and painting elsewhere.
I studied for four years at The Slade School of Fine Art where I was awarded The Slade Prize on graduation. I went on to travel and study further finally doing a P.G.C.E at Exeter University with Ted Wragg as my mentor. It was a wonderful year of education which set me in good stead for my years of teaching since then.
