ART TUTORIALS / PERFORMANCE


WATERCOLOUR FOR BEGINNERS;

These days are ideally suited with little or no experience

The lessons will be friendly and fun - non competitive;

But the progress will be spectacular-gained from early

experiences as art lecturer on cruise ships in the eighties;

" On my first one in 1982 - I was a disaster for the first two days - but I knew they couldn't go anywhere for a fortnight -  I was eventually asked to do as many as I could"

Danny has taught thousands to paint since then -

with engagements at art societies-village halls - Art colleges,

Summer Schools and art conventions - converting non-painters to the joys of watercolour and drawing with his simplistic techniques and original approach..

PERFORMANCE IN THE ARTS

'THE GRANVILLE D. CLARKE EXPERIENCE'

A unique entertainment in the arts - from this multi-talented artist /artiste.

His programme includes dynamic watercolour demonstrations and sketches-which are interspersed with Danny's own

poetry / original songs and relative classic traditional

material - working self-contained - accompanying himself on acoustic guitars and piano. & presented in his own inimitable organic style - infectious enthusiasm and linked with

spontaneous eccentricities and stories.

or one hour performance.

'VISUALLY VIVALDI'

Was an initiative developed by Danny in conjunction with the Knaresborough Arts Festival and Pro-musica orchestra - 1999

When Danny completed 4 large impressionistic

watercolours - depicting the seasons and feel of the music and mood to an enthralled audience of 800 -

And just for good measure read Vivaldi's sonnets to set the feel - prior to the painting of each canvas.

Dynamic lighting added to what was a memorable evening of around one hour duration.
