Draw with me
Alongside my ongoing art practice, I deliver classes in observational and experimental drawing and painting.
From University workshops to one-to-one classes for Key Stage 3 students, I love working with people to explore how we can observe and capture the world around us.
My classes cover the rules about colour, form and proportion, as well as finding ways we can break them. Good art gives the viewer a small look inside the artists head, it is a brilliant thing to be able to work with students to develop that self expression and confidence.
Sample topics include -
Drawing techniques & experimental line
Human form & proportion
Applying colour with confidence
Soft pastel techniques
Working with mixed media & mark making techniques
Colour theory & colour psychology
Working with base colour matters
Colour mixing: techniques for portraits
Interior design illustration & textures

"I've been drawing with Bonnie for 7 years now. She helped me discover my own style & introduced me to many other drawing techniques.
I really enjoy her lessons and thanks to her I draw a lot more often now"
"Bonnie's lessons encouraged me to be more brave, and helped me discover my own way of mark making"
"My child loves studying with Bonnie, and learns tons.
Most importantly - they learn to trust themself!"
