Art club tuition and demonstrations

If your art club, group or association are looking for inspiration, tuition or demonstrations then I am happy to come along to your art club for a single session or over multiple sessions.  I am happy to plan a session based on your needs and the skills levels of your art club members.  Or if your members fancy a day out – request a block booking in my Manchester studio – by special arrangement.

I’m an experienced adult tutor, and probably offer the widest choice of independent artist-led drawing and mixed-media art courses in Manchester.  I am a qualified tutor and teacher so am used to teaching mixed ability classes from beginners to semi-professionals, all in the same group.

Suitable for all abilities.

  • My 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.
