I am a qualified teacher (B Ed Hons)and an artist. My classes are fun, relaxed and enjoyable. Both beginners and experienced artists are all welcome to my classes. I find my classes work very well this way. I challenge and support everyone individually. A
Ali Hargreaves lives in Poynton, Cheshire with her husband and children.
She taught as a primary school teacher for 17 years, but has always pursued her passion for art. Ali studied art at Ripon College, Yorkshire and has subsequently completed courses in batik, drawing, watercolours and mixed media. Ali enjoys working with a variety of art materials and produces artwork in different styles. It is her intention that this web site will give you an insight into her versatility. Some of the art work you see is for sale but usually Ali undertakes commissions to suit your individual requirements and therefore produces something which is unique and personal.
She has several regular weekly classes teaching Watercolours, Acrylics, Mixed media and Textiles Art. She also teaches as an Artist in Residence at two primary schools every week. Ali is regularly invited to demonstrate and run workshops for local Art groups and societies. In June 2018, she ran her first workshop Live at SAA Headquarters. In addition to this, she has painted several murals including two very large ones very high up in Pear mill. She had to use her climbing skills as well!
