High quality art courses and drawing classes for beginners to experienced artists and those of you yet to try
My art classes, drawing classes, and creative art courses are inspirational,
wonderfully challenging, and definitely rewarding.
Expand your horizons beyond Sheffield and treat yourself
to a creative weekend in Manchester.
My studio is based within easy access of the city centre,
and walking distance from a quality budget hotel.
The Begin to Draw and Begin to Paint courses are designed to help beginners get a foot up onto the first rung of the creative ladder.
All my other courses are suitable for everyone. But why?
Mixed ability classes are dynamic and offer increased learning opportunities.
Beginners are inspired by working alongside more experienced learners.
Experienced learners build self confidence by sharing their knowledge and skills.
Streamed classes can put a ‘glass ceiling’ on your learning and limit your progression.
Adult learners bring a life time of skills and experience to the class. This can’t be streamed.
I believe in leaving the opportunity open for unexpected leaps of learning and creativity that can propel students beyond the narrow definitions of ‘beginner, intermediate or advanced’.
This is why – We draw. We learn. Have fun – together.
