Art Courses

I tutor the James Gray Art Group, which has been running for 15 years. It holds classes near Southport town centre on:

  • Mondays: 2pm - 4pm
  • Fridays: 10am - 12am
  • (see

The classes are run on a termly basis. Teaching is usually in water colour, but some lessons are in pen and wash and occasionally special lessons will demonstrate pastel, acrylics, or oils. Each class begins with a half hour demonstration of painting or drawing techniques, working these into a full painting. Afterwards you are free to paint or draw your own composition or copy the techniques demonstrated. I am always on hand to give help and advice. The group holds regular exhibitions throughout the year in local libraries and galleries and Alston Hall near Preston. The classes are suitable for both beginners and more experienced painters.

Social activities include visits to galleries and exhibitions around the country, charity functions, and of course the Christmas meal. The James Gray Art Group is a friendly and active group and should you decide to join us you can be assured of a warm welcome.

 Art Holidays are also run throughout the year in the country and abroad. The location and dates for these and for the day workshops can be found on our website - or telephone 01704 569971
