Distance Learning



I have been operating  Distance Learning courses successfully for over ten years. During that time many hundreds of students globally have completed my courses.

Why Distance Learning?

Due to your location, current employment or study, health issues, time or commitment factors you may not be able to attend regular classes, workshops or courses.

What advantages does Distance Learning offer?

You work at your own pace from the comfort of home and there are absolutely no time restrictions.

All skills levels are catered for from the absolute beginner to the experienced artist who would like to learn new skills.

Do I need previous experience?

No previous knowledge is required or assumed. You will learn everything you need to know about using pen and watercolour wash; from paper, materials and drawing techniques, mixing colours, working on location and much more. Each Module will focus on a different topic.

Is the course expensive?

It is considerably less expensive to do the Distance Learning Course, than attending classes or workshops. You receive one-on-one tuition and a detailed critique with suggestions for each assignment. Contact me for the course fee. Contact me for the cost of the course fee.

Do I need a computer? Are the lessons done online?

No, you do not need a computer as I prefer the original sketch to be posted to me for critiquing. This allows me to see how you approached the sketch, the colours  used and how the colour was applied. These nuances can be lost when scanning and emailing online.

How many modules are there?

There are six modules, each containing detailed information on the relevant subject. There are also step by step demonstrations to follow. On completion, the course notes can be collated to form a book ‘Travel Sketching with Pen &  Wash’ . This will be a permanent research and revision book for your library. The contents are structured and comprehensive and it is the only course of its type globally, with much more indepth information than you would find in other Pen & Wash or Sketching books.

How do I enrol and pay?

A registration form is sent on request. Australian students can pay by direct debit (banking details will be sent on request), bank cheque, personal cheque or money order. International students can pay by direct debit into my account. On receipt the first  Module will be sent.

Do I receive a certificate?

On completion you will receive a Certificate of Merit.
