TIGER,TIGER, BURNING BRIGHT. Realistic or abstracted animal portrait. New!


[beginners/improvers. Any media]


12 JUNE 10.30-4.30  £67


Unlike our last animal drawing class this tiger will sit still, captured in a photo! Whether you want to paint a realistic image of this majestic creature or create a decorative or  abstracted image, we will begin with a warm-up sketch to get our ‘eye in’, then develop a composition.

 From our chosen reference point [ I will bring photos; you might like to bring your own. A different animal even?] we will learn a useful classical technique for accurate portraits as we transfer our sketch to canvas or paper,

 You can then paint in your chosen medium or perhaps mixed media as you richly embellish your design. The colours and stripes of a tiger lend themselves to a bold painting, do you dare? ;-]

 [Again, we will jump straight into the subject today, without discussing medium techniques, but bold beginners are very welcome and will get lots of help]


Please consult our materials list here in plenty of time!




Our ‘at a glance’ programme for the season is here to help you plan. Come and treat yourself to an enjoyable day with like-minded company, in a bright, airy studio, coffee nearby and there’s always some laughter and surprises!


Students paint for all sorts of reasons...skills, an enjoyable hobby, social life, self-expression, relaxation and so on .Liana’s sessions are considered good value, inspiring and packed with tips ; several serious students have even gone on to sell their work.

 Liana is a seasoned trainer, therapist and artist, skilled at breaking down learning steps, instilling confidence and creating a warm, fun, supportive atmosphere. All students are also invited to join her Artists Circle community for free challenges, news, critiquing and teaching.

 ‘ I always leave class with a whole host of new skills, but more than that, I have a new energy and belief in myself to carry forward into my art, my life. If you want to get your artistic mojo back, sign up!’ C. D

 Please help us prepare well for you by booking at least two days before a course. Every effort will be made to accommodate last minute bookings, if there are places still available. Thankyou.
