Art For Beginners...


Steve Bretel has spent over 15 years as a creative arts facilitator and fine artist across the UK, after a successful commercial art career in London. Studying widely at Duncan of Jordanstone, Edinburgh College of Art, and theatre design in Glasgow, Steve was a professional member of the Society of Industrial Artists & Designers (SIAD) and holds a BA in Visual Communication.


Whether you’ve just been given a paint box as a present, or need some creative confidence to get you started again, these progressive classes are for you. The basics will be covered such as choice and use of materials, sketching, drawing and painting using accurate observation with imaginative or semi-abstract approaches. Each class will be fun and supportive with its own theme, using a mixture of demos and instruction, taking inspiration from both man-made and natural subjects. Some materials are provided to start you off, then suggestions will be given for purchasing your own.

Aimed at beginners and those starting afresh.
