My passion is painting - and I also love sharing my knowledge and experience gleaned over the last thirty years. I have worked hard to plan courses, designed to empower you on your artistic journey whether you're completely new to art or an experienced artist seeking fresh perspectives.
These courses will provide you with the perfect platform to gain confidence, encouragement, and direction. You can start with the simple skills of how to draw, discover the art of mixing perfect colours, explore new techniques and the joy of self expression, and for those with more experience develop your unique artistic voice. Together, we'll unlock your artistic potential and embark on an exciting journey of growth and creativity in a supportive and nurturing environment.
"I loved your art course. Your preparation and planning was superb. Loved the exercises and experimental paintings. I certainly learnt how to "look" and how to see. It was so helpful to be guided on how to be looser and freer with the brushes." Alex, 10/22
By joining one of my upcoming courses, you'll embark on an enriching artistic adventure with small groups of like-minded creatives. It is always a benefit to be in a group but I keep the numbers really limited so that you receive personalised guidance. My aim is for you to gain confidence in your abilities and discover the joy of exploring your creativity.
The dates and a brief summary of the new courses are below but more details please click on the sections.
The course costs include all materials, venue, tuition, coffee, teas and a light but tasty lunch.
