BYO journal - any hardback sketchbook will do - it does not need to be expensive or high quality - just one you like without any lines...I like an A4 hardback visual Diary or sketchbook, but you might prefer an A5 size. If your unsure - come along without on the 1st day and see 1st hand what you might like - while still joining in with paper & materials, I have here for you.

All other materials included. No experience necessary.

Portraiture Fundamentals & Foundations

Portraiture the Fundamentals & Foundations 6 week journey– learn to observe and appreciate life and gain an understanding of what is happening and more importantly - what is not happening in any given portrait.  Become more confident to trust and action what you are observing. Learn to avoid the most common pitfalls made by amateur artists & learn how to see, understand and express shapes, shadows, highlights and less obvious tones & planes by playing with charcoal & pencil on paper and later acrylic paint and mixed media. We will playfully and mindfully & joyfully focus on facial features eyes mouths and those tricky noses and gain some clarity, while we practice proportion, placement and the fundamentals.  Let's make this sometimes-tricky skill of portraiture fun and playful in a safe space where mistakes and not knowing how are celebrated and having a go is encouraged.  Leave perfection at the door.

All Materials included.  No experience necessary.



"At the Little School of Art and Alchemy you are immersed in serenity the moment you step out of your car.  Your senses are greeted by a pot of hot tea steeped with freshly plucked herbs from the garden.  Lambs bleat and chickens cluck nearby.  Cat's expertise and unique approach to teaching encourages you to discover your own style of learning and your own artistic identity." - Cherie

"My 6 week journey has been a journey of self- discovery in the most beautiful, gentle, creative way" - Sheree

"Art class with the beautiful Cat Cronin from The Little School of Art and Alchemy is a gift to this world. Every week we come together with beautiful people, beautiful surroundings and tea from Cats gorgeous garden. Over soul chats, laughter and sometimes tears each week is a journey of self-discovery through creative expression. I feel truly blessed to have this in my life" -S

"What is The Little School of Art and Alchemy? It’s not what you think it is!!Your experiences there will confuse you at first - but then you will be delighted as the real YOU comes to the fore. You will be nudged, coerced, persuaded and most of all encouraged to show YOURSELF (in all your glory) as you discover, unfold and express your heart’s desires - where all the MAGIC of life exists. It’s a wonderful journey to be treasured into your future." - L
