I run regular weekly workshops called 'Painting my Way'.The workshops are run on a Saturday and run from 10am -2pm ish !
I teach in oils, acrylics and melted wax..
There is a wide variety of methods used in the workshops including wet on wet oil.
The paint is very easy to blend on the canvas and beautiful effects happen in the blink of an eye,and before you know it you have a beautiful finished painting!
I go through each painting in small steps , showing you how to load the brush and how to apply it to the canvas, so there isnt a lot to remember at a time.
Everything you need is supplied by me from brushes,canvas and even the aprons.
I have had people from as far afield as Ireland ,Germany and Norway come to my workshops,the latest one came from St Lucia!
There are some wonderful places to stay in the area if you want to make a weekend of it and we are renowned for our food around here.
Please check out my website www.paintingmyway.co.uk
for the latest photos of my students and their paintings.
There are lots of lovely B+B's in the area--all have been recommended by my students and details can be found on my website.
Ludlow is famous for its food--and there is lots to do for non -painting partners..
Everyone goes away with a completed painting in around 4 hours and most people come back again and again and bring friends and family with them!.I charge just £35 for most workshops--which is inclusive of all materials needed and all the tea,coffee and biscuits you can manage!!
The price for the workshop has been £35 since I started teaching over 11 years ago.
Some of the workshops are a higher price as they are on a much bigger canvas- eg the 'Yesterday' workshop is on a 40in x 12in canvas and is £45
All details of workshops can be found on my website www.paintingmyway.co.uk

My name is Diane Jennings.I am a successful self taught artist and I live in the beautiful town of Ludlow in Shropshire.
I love to paint everything in nature, waterfalls, sunsets, trees and light in different ways,and I dont always stick to the rules.
Some of my work is abstract and some is more true to life,there is something for everyone I hope!
I run very popular classes called Painting My Way.
In each 4 hour workshop I show up to 15 people at a time how to produce a beautiful oil or acrylic painting.I supply everything needed, 16in x 20in box canvas,paints, brushes and of course the detailed step by step instruction, all you do is turn up and enjoy your self!.
I am passionate about painting and I believe that anyone can produce a painting to be proud of in my workshops.
It does not matter how much experience you have had ,if any at all, everyone goes away happy and I have a book full of lovely comments to prove it!
