Recognising that many and varied barriers exist, members of the community who have not had the opportunity to engage in formal art training are especially welcome. This may include having a disability, being a carer, living remotely etc. Please let Genevieve know if you need any specific assistance.
Learn to draw with willow charcoal — a gentle, responsive and forgiving material ideal for your first tentative works. Classes for beginners are guided and will aim to develop an approach that works for your personal learning style, strengths and sensibilities. 
Continuing Students 
Delve deeper into specific areas that speak to you. Participants will work closely with Genevieve; observe her drawing techniques and processes, draw collaboratively and receive feedback on progress as needed. 
Creative Practitioners 
Gain new skills, challenge your understanding of what is possible and develop an expansive drawing practice at university level.
Talented Teens 
If your teen really wants to draw, Genevieve would love to teach them. Classes with teens are student-led, exploring materials and subjects that interest them. Teens will also have the opportunity to develop a portfolio that can assist them with the future stages of their creative journey. 
Genevieve’s approach with children aims to develop visual literacy and motor skills through playful experiments, visual games and storytelling.
