ART CLASSES & TUITION
From my home in the Gloucestershire countryside and in my studio in Cheltenham I run inspiring art classes and tuition for all ages and abilities.
I love passing on my passion for making and creating. Art is a wonderful activity to participate in and an amazing way of immersing yourself in a world that is limitless and very rewarding.
I have a Masters degree in Fine Art and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in Art, Design and Textiles. I offer supportive sessions that can be very useful when creating or adding to portfolios for Common Entrance, GCSE, A level or preparation for interview for Foundation Studies. Together we will investigate and develop skills using different techniques, looking at relevant artists and using different mediums. We can also build on themes that have already been formed. The work made is within context and framework of the individual’s course work.
The small group classes make the most of the glorious Cotswold landscape, along with the views from my windows and the colourful still lives of bowls of fruit and vases of flowers that are set up around the studio. We will use pen and ink for rapid observational drawing; quick and easy drawing exercises to help you to free up and explore different ways to make marks.
During these exercises we will work out interesting and new ways of looking at composition, while all the time referencing art history and relevant artists. I will demonstrate and guide you with practical techniques that will bring a new confidence to your art work. The classes will use water colours and gouache which with their brilliant colours and luminosity lend themselves to immediacy and spontaneity.
I also run 2 or 3 day classes and you can stay locally in some lovely air b ‘n’ b’s that are a short walk from my home. They are run by friends and come highly recommended. Please Contact Us for details.
