Children's and Adult Art Workshops

I am a fully qualified DBS checked Primary school teacher and offer one to one and group painting lessons to adults and children. These often follow a particular still life or landscape theme , and are taught in a step by step approach from life where possible, so perfect for beginners or more experienced painters.

Workshops are run at various times of the year for children, notably during half terms, Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays. These workshops are organised in two age groups,  6-10 and 11--16 years, at Stamford Arts Centre and Oakham School. 

Children get to bring along their own canvas, and paint directly at an easel, which is often a first for them. During the workshop children get to experiment with different styles of painting with tuition provided in colour mixing, using palette knives and different sized brushes and mixed media. Approaching a subject matter, focussing in particular on composition, form and colour are explored by the children with absolutely wonderful results!

Refreshments are also provided during the workshop.

I also run small parties for groups of children to celebrate a birthday, please email me to discuss requirements.



Children's Workshops

Provide the opportunity for children to explore their creativity in a relaxed workshop themed setting. They get to paint at a student easel, learn about primary, secondary and complimentary colours, and how to construct a composition from life.

Adult workshops also run from Stamford Arts Centre, or I can attend a venue and prepare a workshop for a party of adults or work colleagues.

These sessions are fun and informative, with a focus on producing a painting in an informal, but structured setting, whilst having a coffee or occasional glass of fizz!

Adults who have attended classes are always eager to rebook, for pure self indulgence in some quality time exploring their own creativity, or just for escapism and enjoying a new hobby. 


Organised workshops are costed per head for a given time. Parties or work events will be costed according to requirements.


One to one workshops are available on request.

Sadly due to Covid 19 restrictions workshops are now on hold. New classes will be advertised as soon as they can safely commence.
