WHAT WE DO
Corporate Art Parties
The most important person in your place of work is the employee and we want to help them realise their full potential.
To all those companies who are struggling to get people back into work let me take the pain away. An Art Team building day will bring your staff together in a fun and educational way. Our art sessions are designed and run with your people in mind and how we can make an impact on them in the workplace and even in their personal life.
We’ll provide everything and we’ll do it at your place of work (within reason).
Cost: £350 for half a day (3 hours), including materials, at your workplace/chosen venue, for 15-20 people
Private Art Parties
Let us be a part of your party. Whether it is a corporate event, a family get-together, a bridal shower, a 90th birthday, or even a Hen or Stag do. Learn how to draw the naked form. And have bags of fun. We’ll bring the Nude model, so don’t panic, it’s not going to be you. Have fun with various drawing tasks and games whilst enjoying some Prosecco and nibbles. What better way to appreciate the human body than this fabulous, informative, life drawing party where you get the chance to get creative, try something new, and release your inner Da Vinci.
Even if you think your life drawing skills don't go beyond stick men with smiley faces you may surprise yourself. You can even add a competitive element, by awarding your own prize for the best sketch and appoint your model to act as judge.
I can help arrange a venue for you or we can do it in your home.
Cost: £395 for 3 hours, including materials, model, bubbles & nibbles, for 8 -20 people
Private & Group Art Lessons
In our group and private lessons, no one says they’ve made a mistake. If your painting is not quite what you were planning then you can change it. After all, it’s your painting and you are the artist – so nobody knows what your intention was. And we will guide you of course.
Our lessons and courses are a complete beginner’s course for those who want a general overview and introduction to drawing and painting.
You will be introduced to a variety of techniques and the formal elements of painting and drawing. This will include, line, colour, texture, form, perspective and many more. You will also experiment with a wide range of mediums, ranging from pencil, charcoal and, acrylics. The aim of the course is to develop your own creative pathway through fundamental painting and drawing techniques.
Group Cost: £15 per person for groups of 10-20, for an hour, your home or chosen venue, including materials
Private Cost: £30 per person, for one hour, your home or my studio, including materials
Art Appreciation Classes & Tours
Together we can explore, on a private or group basis, via classes, local tours or travel tours, how art has changed over the centuries along with the different styles, movements, and the impact on the issues of society at that time.
Art appreciation helps open up the mindset of the people, by listening to different perspectives and views as well as different interpretations of the painting you’re looking at. It encourages thoughtful conversation and the understanding that there is more than one approach to everything.
Let’s take the art appreciation a step further and look at some paintings in person. We’ll discuss and analyse what we see, whether we like or don’t like and if it gives us ideas for creating our own paintings.
