Creative Photographic and Art Classes (Cancelled until further notice due to the COVID Pandemic)
Maybe you are looking for a relaxing and creative learning experience with a digital camera, or fancy trying your hand at painting pictures.
In 2015, Richard White, a semi-retired professional photographer, artist and tutor, relocated from France to the beautiful South Cotswolds in Wiltshire. Richard, assisted by his wife Clare is now running various classes, for anyone wishing to explore their potential talents.
With a positive and encouraging approach, Richard will inspire you to go beyond your expectations so you create pictures that will give you a sense of achievement and satisfaction, no matter if you are a curious beginner or much more experienced. To make matters easier, you do not need the latest equipment or materials to enjoy the various lessons.
The classes are lots of fun as Richard aims to provide guidance and advice for improving existing skills or bringing out hidden ones without infringing individual creative expression.
Classes are conducted from Richard's premises in Wiltshire, in close proximity to the glorious surrounding countryside and villages within the South Cotswolds. You will also have access to a studio Apple MAC computer and printers. Furthermore, if you wish to take back a gift or something to remind you of your experiences, there are a number of superbly framed prints, original paintings and 'Chiara' hand-made greeting cards on display.
We look forward to seeing you soon for a memorable creative experience. However, you are also most welcome to email for details.
