I offer Private Tuition in Acrylics, Pastels and Watercolour at £30 a session (1:1) This is in my home studio, where I run workshops and short courses, for individuals and small groups. My workshop days are a good starting point for new painters or those wanting to try a new subject or medium. I tailor classes to suit individual needs and interests so if you don't see exactly what you are looking for on my workshop lists we can discuss other possibilities.
I can help you with pets, wildlife, equestrian, landscape, figure and still-life genres.
I also offer group demonstrations and workshops, and will travel outside my local area.
