Mr Keddie's original artwork is available to all collectors, through this online facility,
or by private viewing, at Drum Brae House, by appointment only.
Art Classes are also offered by Mr. Keddie on an individual basis
to beginners and advanced artists alike.
We offer classes to assist adults who wish
to enter, take part in
and enjoy the creation of artworks, whether it be for pleasure, or business. The course is designed, on a ‘one to one’ basis over a six week period.
The course will:
• Teach practical painting and drawing skills and techniques
• Explore and develop personal styles of work
• Develop confidence and best practices in the creation of
fine art objects
• Provide all materials necessary to take part in this course
NB. This course utilizes acrylic paints and mediums which are non toxic,
fast drying and retain colour with age, as well as being well suited to tropical environments where humidity and heat can affect finished work.
It does not include the use of oil paint due to time constraints in drying times, practicality in use and the potential for allergic reactions.
