About My Art Classes


My Art Workshops                  


I run my very popular 4 hour workshops most Saturdays throughout the year.

You will complete the painting during the ONE 4 (ish) hour session.


The workshops are suitable for people from the age of 10 years upwards who have never held a brush in their hand before  through to people who have painted for years! I go through the entire painting in tiny steps--I will show you how to load the brush through to how to correct any mistakes...so I have taken the fear out of it all...

If you have always painted using tiny details this may be the thing for you-it will help you loosen up and be free, take a look at the students snaps page of my website and see for yourself!

All you need to bring along is a sandwich,a sense of humour and the ability to stay awake for 4 hours!


I supply all the materials needed to complete a 16in x 20in painting (some workshops may vary in canvas size) the paints  which depending on the workshop subject— will be oils or acrylic paint, high quality box canvas, brushes and most importantly the tea, coffee and biscuits !

For some of the workshops there will be a choice of colours and also canvas size-but there may be a small extra charge for some size canvas-please check website.


The detailed instruction is step by step—-everything is explained as I show you how to use each brush.

I will show you how to load the brush with paint and how to apply it to the canvas.

Each painting turns out different to the next persons as everyone interprets what I show them differently from the next person.

There is a wide variety of course paintings-each one has something new to offer the students-a new technique is learned in each class.

Some of the classes are in oil, some in acrylic and some are combining both mediums.

The classes are very laid back as well as being informative, as a rule I only have a maximum of 4 students each time so I can give lots of attention to everyone.

Many of my students come back again and again,and lots of friendships have been formed in the classes!

I get many emails and phone calls after my classes-here is the latest one received from Patrick who attended the Forest Pool class on Oct 31st

Well, what can I say!

As today dawned, I was filled with trepidation, somewhat akin to contemplating a visit to the dentist.  How unwarranted was that!  Creating my painting - under your watchful guidance - has been a marvellous experience.  I really enjoyed myself, and Linda was impressed with my handiwork - which makes a welcome change!

All I can say is thank you.  And, I must add, Linda wants the picture put up in our sitting room.  How's that as a credit to your tuition.

Our best wishes to you and Bill.  Hope the clear up of all our mess didn't take you too long.
Patrick and Linda


The results are always very good and I offer a money back guarantee to anyone not entirely happy with their painting.
I keep my classes page updated with place numbers available-many of the classes get fully booked as soon as I set dates for them!

THE COST OF MOST OF THE CLASSES IS £40 ALL INCLUSIVE OF ALL MATERIALS AND REFRESHMENTS.

THE PRICE OF THE CLASSES HAS BEEN THE SAME SINCE I STARTED TEACHING 13YEARS AGO!

THE PRICE FOR THE USUAL 16" X 20" WORKSHOPS WILL REMAIN THE SAME
