Welcome to my blog which is also my learning log  for the Open College of the Arts Degree Programme in Drawing and Painting!

Who am I?

ianocaMy name is Ian Stubbs and I have enjoyed drawing and painting, largely self-taught,  for a number of years. I retired in July 2016 and am excited to have joined the OCA programme offering a structured way of developing my practical skills and knowledge as well as a sound theoretical foundation. I also have a passionate interest in the history of art especially the modern and postmodern and the thrilling developments and changes in approach by successive artists in the twentieth century.

I live near Crewe Cheshire UK and am married. Between us my wife and I have 5 children and 6 grandchildren from who I learn so much about freedom and creativity in art.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once s/he grows up.
