Please have a look at my BLOG PAGE http://artjosietipler.wordpress.com/demosworkshops/ which has a calendar of my events and lists dates available for workshops and demonstrations. I am often happy to take last minute bookings if you have had a cancellation.
I run both Arlington Art Group and Hailsham Art Group - see http://www.arlingtonartsgroup.co.uk and http://www.hailshamartgroup.blogspot.co.uk
Workshops and Demonstrations
I am available to do Art Demonstrations and Workshops to groups. (I also run the occasional course so will post details on the events page of dates coming up.)

Exhibiting for 12 years, painting commissions for 31 years.
Born in London in 1964, I moved to sussex at the age of 16 and received my first paid commission in the same year! Since then I have painted hundreds of animal portraits. I trained in Graphic Design in Hastings and left with a college Diploma.
I married a graphic designer, Jim, and have 3 gorgeous and artistic sons. In addition to being a freelance artist I have worked for a picture shop (selling originals, prints and frames), as a craft show organiser, an office manager for a design company, a Teaching Assistant in primary schools, specialising in Art lessons, a bookseller in Ottakar's Book shop (made redundant after the Waterstones takeover) and now work with my husband running a print business, Hailsham Creative.
My first solo exhibition was in 2000 and I have been in numerous group exhibitions and held Open Studios. I tutor adults and children in various styles and mediums and run my own classes and courses but have had to cease the local community college adult education classes due to the Government's short-sighted withdrawal of subsidies of fees for non-vocational courses. But that's another issue!
I accept commissions and am still running the Arlington SAA Art Group,and am once again available for workshops and corporate activities, classes, courses, and demonstrations.
