Welcome to the website of

Budding Artists


for those that love drawing, painting and making


Pure drawing is a new course. No drawing skill is required but the ability to concentrate is. Students will learn to draw using the right side of their brain which not only will turn them into excellent drawers but help with relieving stress, creativity and problem solving. Within a few lessons, you ability to draw will have improved. The full course lasts a year. £75 per term.
