NOTICE – 2020 Art Classes

Mar 28 2021

Up to now, John’s 2020 on-line art classes have been free of charge  – with an exhortation to users to make a voluntary donation via a GoFundMe page that a fan had set up to help John financially through the pandemic. Regrettably, this has not proved as successful as had been hoped so, over the coming weeks, John’s 2020 lessons will migrate to a paid format, like his 2021 lessons. After they migrate to paid format, they will be found among John’s 2021 on-line art classes.

Lockdown #3

Dec 31 2020

Here we go again.
It’s sort of hard not to feel somewhat depressed by entry into Lockdown #3 … I miss seeing my students and enjoying the enthusiasm and energy they bring to their endeavours. Don’t forget my video art classes are available here on my site – maybe have a go at a subject you haven’t attempted before!
Whatever you do, please stay safe!
