Teaching, Demonstrations ,Workshops ,and Art Classes as a Gift
My teaching these days includes, organised groups (for example the Heswall W.I. art group, Heswall art society and the Hoylake Art group at the Hoylake community centre), demonstrations and talks for Societies (such as Irby Artists, Neston Art group and Churchtown art group), and Workshop days.
Workshops are fun experiences, usually on the topics of either “Urban Sketching” or “Watercolour for Beginners”, but I am happy to tailor a workshop for a particular group on a particular topic
I am delighted to be asked along as a visiting tutor and thoroughly enjoy the sessions and will structure them to the request of the participants.
Classes as a gift
For example Birthdays, Retirement, Anniversaries, or Christmas.
Often a well received gift that is a little out of the ordinary. One-on-one (or one-on -two) Art Tutoring is undertaken at my studio in Meols and can be structured to suit the level of ability of participants and the type of art they are interested in.
My guilty admission is that I thoroughly enjoy the classes as I try to make them both fun and educational for students. If you are interested in tutorials such as this please call 07962980177 and we can talk it through.
Classes are for all levels of adult amateur artists. Those starting out for the first time on a retirement hobby, those coming back to painting after many years and for those wishing to refine existing or latent skills.
Classes take place in my studio in Meols and because they are in groups of no more than two tutoring time can be better focussed and personal progress enhanced. Practical projects cover topics such as colour mixing, applying washes, materials, papers, perspective – in fact anything to do with watercolour and art. Other associated skills and techniques such as drawing, sketching, mono-printing and abstract work can be introduced as students choose. (I do not tutor oil or acrylic painting, and feel that teaching children is better left to schools).
The essence of a good watercolour painting is to enjoy the process and have fun, – if you produce a picture you are pleased with – well that’s an added benefit!
If you are interested in coming along please contact me (via the contacts page or telephone number above) and I can discuss it through with you and provide more details agree dates, availability, the fees , and what you will need to bring along.
