Drawing with your smart phone and tablet – details
Developing your own art – details
Drawing flowers and plants  – details

I welcome individuals and small groups into my home studio to make art for enjoyment and pleasure.  I am an experienced teacher and especially enjoy supporting non-artists to have a go.  Once upon a time I couldn’t draw!  Now I draw for pleasure and relaxation.  Join me to learn skills and techniques and have fun.  I am planning workshops on digital drawing and drawing flowers and plants for people who can’t draw and want to.  

Maximum of 5 for any workshop in my small, sunny studio with a peep of the Mangawhai estuary and the sand dunes.   

 

Drawing with your smart phone and tablet

Workshops: Saturday 29 July or Tuesday 8 August
Learn how to draw on your smartphone.  Sketch while you are out and about.  Make cards for birthdays and special occasions.  Drawing and painting on your phone is recognised as an art form – David Hockney exhibits his iphone paintings in major international galleries.  Using free Apps you will learn how to manipulate the brushes and pencils on screen and achieve great results.  Fun, easy and vibrant results. Print or e-cards, friends and family will love them.

You will need your own smart phone
