Learn to paint the African bushveld
A quick trip to the baking heat of the southern African bushveld is the treat in store for students in my watercolour class next week – and you can join them!
Unfortunately we are not literally going across to the other side of the world, but it’s the subject of the class’s next two lessons. As usual, the students will be following me step by step from preparatory drawing to finished painting, so the classes are ideal for beginners, intermediate or those returning to painting after a break.
Classes are fun and social (my only rule is that there are no mistakes, only experiments) but they are not social “daub and chat” gatherings, they are explicitly taught lessons so that you learn the different techniques whether it is in the initial drawing, such as using perspective, or in the mixing and application of paint
Private art coaching either face-to-face or online
If you want some private art coaching rather than working in a group so that you can focus on specific areas of development and interest, then we can arrange either regular or one-off sessions at mutually convenient times. These can either be face-to-face (if you live locally) or via one of the online chat forums.
To chat about your requirements for the lessons, just get in touch via the message block at the bottom of the page.
I am still buzzing over yesterday’s lesson! And my portrait! I still can’t believe what I produced, I feel like yesterday’s lesson was the most exciting lesson I’ve ever taken. And the way you explain the concept of the right/left brain seems perfectly logical to me, and very exciting just thinking of the possibilities ahead! I’m so glad I signed up, thank you so much, I feel like you have given me a special gift.
I can honestly say, as one of Angela’s students, these classes are amazing! Such a relaxed atmosphere, lots of encouragement & constructive criticism.
On behalf of Flo, thank you so much for reigniting her love of art and for giving her the confidence to create her own pictures x Flo has learnt so much from you Angela
We are both enjoying the class so much; can’t believe the last picture we painted was so good. Many thanks.
For anyone who fancies having a go at painting and drawing I would highly recommend this lovely lady - Angela Birchall. I was lucky enough to have a painting tutorial in France with Angela a couple of years ago and it was the most glorious experience. I’ve signed up to the free starter tutorial Angela is offering. I trust Angela implicitly and she is such a genuine, warm and caring person who really wants to empower people to enjoy painting and drawing.
I would like to say that you have been the most wonderful teacher, kind, patient and full of helpful knowledge.
Thank you for the art classes, it really has rekindled a passion!
Classes are fun and social (my only rule is that there are no mistakes, only experiments) but they are not social “daub and chat” gatherings, they are explicitly taught lessons so that you learn the different techniques whether it is in the initial drawing, such as using perspective, or in the mixing and application of paint. They run in a continuous cycle of 4-week blocks so that we can take 2-weeks per painting and explore different techniques, styles or subject content and achieve more complex paintings. All materials are provided and the cost is £40 for the 4-lesson block, payable in advance.
The watercolour classes are held in the Guide HQ in Green Lane, Ormskirk on Fridays from 10am to 12 noon. The next block runs from October 14th to November 4th.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a “first paid, first served” basis, so if you want to join or get more details, please message me or email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.

Lessons will give you the skills and confidence to enable you to go out sketching on location . . . but it's twice as much fun if you go with friends
