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 teaching is always carefully structured and planned to enable you to learn and establish a confident foundation for future creative projects.  Practical exercises and creative projects are part of each session and will help you learn and further develop both practical and creative skills.

Individual attention
I always like to offer as much individual attention as possible (depending on the size of the group) while creating a supportive and relaxed atmosphere with lots of 1:1 encouragement to explore, experiment and discover.

Creativity and technical skills
My teaching always address both technical and creative aspects of the subject we are learning enabling you to leave with strong foundation skills and understanding of how to progress after the session.  You will leave inspired buzzing with ideas.
