Ray has been teaching for nearly twenty years and is regarded as a sensitive and patient teacher, with a good sense of humour. Students will be encouraged to sketch and paint in their chosen medium, working on location as much as possible. Alongside the painting will be a balanced mix of demonstrations, critiques and talks. The courses are suitable for all levels of ability except beginners.
