Glasgow School of Art graduate Diana Hand is an experienced artist, with a special gift for drawing horses with freedom and spontaneity.

In the workshop she will demonstrate an approach to drawing which combines free expression and experimentation with the principles of equine structure. You will have the rest of the day to work from your own ideas and images, or to gain inspiration from Diana’s library of books and photographs along with  her personal advice and guidance as desired.

This class is suitable for all artists from complete beginners to those with more experience. Paper and basic drawing materials are supplied, but you are free to bring your own favourite medium.  Tea and coffee and light refreshments are provided free, but please bring a packed lunch. Numbers are limited to 10 per class, and pre-booking is essential.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION  please contact Diana on info@dianahand.com  or 07403414312

Comments from  previous workshops:

“I felt uninhibited about drawing for the first time ever”

“A thoroughly enjoyable day … Diana had so much knowledge and a clear passion for horses… Co-students were nice people and I think we all engaged with the day positively” 

“The experience was creative, relaxing and tranquil, and Diana builds a confidence in experimenting with the materials and equine form” 

“Great fun and teaching, really nice people and relaxed atmosphere, and wonderful to have a class like this on your doorstep out in the rurals..”
