Distance Learning



I have been operating  Distance Learning courses successfully for over fifteen years. During that time many hundreds of students globally have completed my courses.

Why Distance Learning?
Due to your location, current employment or study, health issues, time or commitment factors you may not be able to attend regular classes, workshops or courses.

What advantages does Distance Learning offer?
You work at your own pace from the comfort of home and there are absolutely no time restrictions.

All skills levels are catered for from the absolute beginner to the experienced artist who would like to learn new skills. You also receive a detailed assessment of your assignments, offering comments, advice and suggestions. Much more individual attention is given than if attending classes or workshops.

Do I need previous experience?
No previous knowledge is required or assumed. You will learn everything you need to know about using pen and watercolour wash; from paper, materials and drawing techniques, mixing colours, working on location and much more. Each Module will focus on a different topic.

Is the course expensive?
It is considerably less expensive to do the Distance Learning Course than attending classes or workshops. You receive one-on-one tuition and a detailed critique with suggestions for each assignment. Contact me for the course fee. 

Do I need a computer? Are the lessons done online?
The course can be completed ONLINE or by POST.
ONLINE – the modules will be emailed to you and the assignments are returned by email.
POST       – the original sketches of your assignments will be posted to me, and returned by post with the following module. This option is
                   perfect if you do not have a computer, or are not sure of the scanning process to return assignments.

How many modules are there?
There are six modules, each containing detailed information on the relevant subject. There are also step by step demonstrations to follow. On completion, the course notes can be collated to form a book ‘Travel Sketching with Pen &  Wash’ . This will be a permanent research and revision book for your library. The contents are structured and comprehensive and it is the only course of its type globally, with much more indepth information than you would find in other Pen & Wash or Sketching books.

How do I enrol and pay?
A registration form is sent on request. Payment is made my Direct Debit into my account.  

Do I receive a certificate?
On completion you will receive a Certificate of Merit.
