The Big Move
Hi everyone. So after 3 years in Brockley, South East London, The Other Art Club has now moved to Bawdsey, near Woodbridge in Suffolk! The reason for this of course is that I, Perienne have just moved to Suffolk! After 10 years in London, I was desperate to live near nature again and so have moved myself and my art studio to to Suffolk. I will still be running workshops at the Royal Drawing School in London, but will be mainly based up here. I am finding that my artwork is changing to reflect this change in where I live. I have been very inspired by the flat marshy landscapes here. I am creating large drawings which look at landscape, cartography, plants and the mythology of these landscapes.
A Thank You to all my Brockley Students
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful students who have attended my classes in Brockley over the years. You made the classes special. Thank you for coming, some of you every week and committing to learning to draw. It is such a difficult thing to draw the human form and I'm so proud of you for persevering. You ALL improved week by week and it was amazing to compare your drawings over time. So thank you! Even though there has now not been a session for a while as I got so busy with both my PGCE and then my own art exhibitions, I shall miss you all! If you ever want to do a course in Suffolk, you would be very welcome!
The New 5 Week Art Courses Starting in September
From September 2016, I will be running 5 week courses here in Bawdsey. I will be teaching Beginners Still Life Drawing, Drawing the Clothed Model, Beginners Bookbinding, Creating a Narrative Artist Book and also a course called 'Work on Your Own Creative Project.' I am particularly interested in working with those who have no prior experience and feel nervous about trying out a new skill. My interest is in drawing out each student's unique talent and way of drawing or working. I find that with a little encouragement and some direction from me, this can happen extraordinarily quickly for most people. I am however, delighted to work with people at all levels and abilities and find that it can be helpful for all concerned when there is mixed level of abilities in a class. I look forward to welcoming my new students in September!
