Weekly Art classes throughout 2023

 Weekly painting classes at Hurstpierpoint in Sussex and on Zoom, led by Cecil. These friendly art classes are suitable for beginners and more experienced painters.


Hurstpierpoint art  classes
Enjoy painting with others in a well-ventilated, light-filled room, with enough space to spread out and free parking just outside. Class sizes are of of 8 - 10  Sessions start with short painting demos, presenting different materials, tools, and techniques. Students are encouraged to follow their own interests and explore new ways of working.


Online Zoom classes
The Zoom classes started in lockdown and have proved so popular that demand means they are ongoing.  Cecil provides a  painting demonstration directly during each Zoom meeting, using a high definition webcam and talking about his technique and procedure as he works.  Students can paint along, or just watch and then access the Zoom recording later to create their own painting. There's an active WhatsApp group to post or share work in progress and finished work, if desired.  These classes involve an exploration of an eclectic mix of paintings from artists such as  Nita Engle,, Georgia O'Keeffe, John Singer Sargent and Eric Ravilious, ( as well as some of Cecil's own work). 


One-off events for groups

New for 2023.  Cecil is very happy to offer to demonstrate and lead a painting group on a one-off basis.  This could suit an art party event, to take place at your own house, or a friend's.  Groups up to six, for a very enjoyable and creative two-hour led painting session. Paint a mini-masterpiece that you can frame later and keep!
