Art tuition

I have been teaching art to adults for over two decades and can offer tuition to suit students working at various levels.

Beginners are welcome as I enjoy introducing people to the pleasures of drawing and painting whilst watching their confidence and appreciation grow.

Students usually bring their chosen media to lessons (pastels, watercolours, acrylic or inks, for example). I also have a small stock of materials with which to experiment and students are welcome to try them.

Some tuition is based at my home near Godalming but visits to nearby places are also an option, especially during the warmer months.

A one-to-one session of up to two hours costs £30. The fee per head for small groups is normally a little less and is dependent upon the number of people attending.

I also run occasional workshops:

  • One-day workshops
  • I occasionally run workshops at the Surrey Wildlife Trust's beautiful Puck's Oak barn and orchard in Compton, near Guildford. They are friendly occasions that include refreshments and a light lunch and artists of all levels are welcome to attend. Have a look at my Workshops page and contact me if you would like to take part or require more information.
