Demonstration Reviews:
Huddersfield Art Society (03/14)

Peter is available to give demonstrations of watercolour to Art Clubs and Societies and other Social clubs.
Although most bookings come from Art Clubs, Peter has given, and is happy to consider giving demonstrations to, many groups not specifically connected to art (Women's Institute, Private Groups, Village Hall Associations etc); in these circumstances, content may be modified accordingly to suit the respective audience. As well as the core demonstration, Peter will also bring along books, DVDs, Cards and Prints for sale at the event. Prior arrangements may be made to auction off the demonstration piece if required.

DURATION
Most demonstrations will last the duration of a club's normal meeting hours (usually 2 hours approx., plus tea-break, up to a maximum of 3 hours) and consist of a stand-up demonstration of watercolour technique.

SUBJECT
Unless a specific technique or subject matter is requested at the time of booking, Peter will usually choose a subject taken from recent sketching trips. He will discuss the importance of the preliminary sketch in the painting process, and then proceed to paint up from the chosen sketch, drawing attention to, and discussing in detail, the techniques involved as they arise. Demonstrations can be lively and entertaining - questions are invited from the audience throughout, making it as informative as possible.

FEES
Fees for demonstrations are charged at a set rate, plus travel expenses (negotiable, depending upon distance).

Peter is happy to consider demonstration enquiries from anywhere in the UK and abroad.
