About

I started Creative Art Courses in 2010.
The idea for teaching from my own studio grew out of 13 years of teaching adult education for Oldham Lifelong Learning.
I’d been part of an organisation that was awarded Outstanding by Ofsted, so it was time to take my skills and experience and start my own teaching and learning art studio.

Now, with over 20 years teaching experience behind me, I have enjoyed seeing my studio grow and flourish. 

My vision for Creative Art Courses is of a studio where everyone can come and be nurtured while learning art and being creative. Focused and structured teaching allows students to learn the technical skills and creativity they need to develop and grow as creative artists. Creative Art Courses  is proud to be a part of the Adult Community Education sector that supports continued learning through all our life stages.

Love teaching art

I am passionate about teaching art. I have a love for the subject and for inspiring people to greater creativity.

“Being an artist requires us to find our voice and express our uniqueness and individuality.”

Teaching ethos

My teaching is designed to guide you towards reaching your goal 
of being a creative confident independent artist.

“Being an artist requires us to find our voice and express our uniqueness and individuality.”

As artists, we are always keen to develop our technical skills in the craft of drawing and painting – and rightly so.  But how much time do we devote to developing and nurturing our creative skills as artists?  You need both to truly develop as an independent artist.

Key Focus

Courses focus on 3 aspects of being an artist

About

Core drawing + observational skills
Master the technical challenges of observation
Draw with accuracy and detail

About

Materials + techniques
Enjoy a wide variety of materials
Develop a rich and vibrant visual language

About

Creativity + self-expression
Nurture your creativity
Develop your own artistic style

Courses are designed to teach
Creativity and Technical skills together – hand in glove.

Think about it!
Technical skill on its own, is not the pot of gold you hope to find at the end of the rainbow.
Learning how to make satisfying, personal and expressive artwork – probably is.

A bit of the legal stuff

I’ve tried to keep it as straight-forward, clearly explained, and short as possible!
