Materials Suppliers

Here's a list of local and internet suppliers that I've either used my self or have been recomended by students:

Art Shops:   These two shop's will give a discount to students.

The Strand Gallery, Southchurch Road, Southend

Rayleigh Art shop. Berry's arcade, Rayleigh. 


Internet Shopping.

http://www.greatart.co.uk/index.html

http://www.jacksonsart.co.uk/images/fp_jacksonsuk.php

http://www.artesaver.co.uk/

The first three I use on a fairly regular basis and are all good.   If you spend over a certain amount, usually between £40 - £50 you get free postage.  Artesaver is the retail site for Seawhite art materials.

Art Classes - Privately run

I  teach art classes throughout the week in a range of different settings.  The classes are all very relaxed in nature and  I usually start the session with a short demonstration or discussion.   I cover a wide range of topics and mediums over the course of a year covering particular aspects of painting or drawing which I think might interest the students.   As well as covereing the basics of painting and drawing I also choose themes which reflect the  interest of the participants of the each group.   All students are welcome to watch the demonstrations but equally welcome to just get on with their own work if they wish to do so.   I also sometimes set optinal projects which students are welcome to follow as well as their own projects.    All classes have a break half way through and tea, coffee and busicuits are provided.     

Please ring (01702 615475) or pop in during class time if you would see the classes in action or if you would like to join a particular class.
