Class Overview & Values
This is an Adults - only class with a Structured Sequence of Focuses across Terms 1 – 4.
New themes each term with continuum, technical learning & ‘character’ subjects. Interest spans: Wild Animals, pets, landscapes, still life, people & genre-responses. This is the ideal class for ‘fresh responses, inviting the exciting attributes of different styles, stocks and approaches’.
Erin brings an attractive knowledge acquired through university – Fine Arts training, classical connections in draw and paint from Ashtons & metaphysical- energy knowledge & know-how in spiritual-art engagements. Her medium-knowledge & expectation is also diverse – known for her Colour & picture generation expertise, teaching Absolute beginners of diverse age, Intermediates and Advanced artists. She is favoured for her tremendous gift with people (no age-barriers) and talent across watercolour, soft pastel, oils, drawing and charcoal splendour.
Each student must be committed in sustained studies ‘getting to know the medium and also subject’ instead of jumping around week to week or term to term. Basics to Beginners-Intermediate acquisition is an incremental and applied passage.

Developing a Rapport
with Art Practice
"Rapport" is our routinised or connective allignment , with mutual appreciation.
Hello art, I love you.
No. (Hello art, you make me happy. I will be back. And yeah, just one more thing - as though you got stuck to the strings of the guitar ).
This is attachment, of an emotional "kind" ( Elasticity )
Art Practice lends itself to a much larger relationship, and its a really diversified construct to appreciation as to how it confides to define Artist-in-perspective and also viewpoints in self understanding in Relationship.
Every artist is different, therefore -
Art making recognises & fosters Conceived relationships to :
- Creative Output ( I make )
- I speak with Literacy & I respond to natural gravitation - with Literacy. One Artist comes with an awareness, a developed connection to art-eutero & art-centric focuses.
- I socialise in visual communication & I consume & process mechanism to life-integrated visual culture.
- I cycle to understand myself & others.
- At life's core-focus to living, I enjoy it.
