Art Classes and Workshops on the Isle of Wight with Julie Sajous
A design teacher for years, I saw that many people who had enjoyed art lessons in the past (often at school) were afraid to try their hand again, lacking in confidence to just have a go, so set about devising lessons based more on tricks and techniques that enable everyone to produce work of value. and so the idea of offering art classes in the beautiful West of the Isle of Wight was conceived.
The art classes are small and friendly (seven is the maximum) allowing each student to have plenty of input from me. They cover all manner of topics from colour theory to painting, pen and wash, collage, printmaking and drawing. By using techniques in a less traditional approach, the students often find skills they didn’t realise they had, building their confidence and allowing them to develop a personal style. Most students forget their initial fear after the first session and some have now gone on to sell their work in local shows here on the Island and also applying for entry into exhibitions further afield.
I now offer Saturday “One-Off” art workshops here in the West Wight as well as regular weekly sessions, based on various themes and aimed at differing abilities. I can also tailor special sessions for groups of friends or family who want to try an activity together which is a little bit different.
The light and airy caravan I converted into a studio sits in a beautiful and very peaceful garden in Wellow, amongst some of the loveliest countryside on the Isle of Wight.
I believe anyone can draw. Why not try it for yourself!
