Learn to draw or paint at your own pace by inviting Kate to give you one-to-one tuition or gather a few friends for a few hours of creative fun! Lessons are designed to give a taster for either a new medium or a subject and are suitable for the absolute beginner to those who have been painting for years and would like to brush up on their skills or try a new medium. They are tailored to suit the requirements of each individual or group and can be booked for a minimum of 2 to 6 hours at a time to suit you. Materials are not included but can be pre-ordered. One-to-one lessons are for women, or children accompanied by an adult only, groups can be mixed. If you have a birthday or a hen party coming up and would like to challenge your friends and family to something different… why not get Kate to organise a few models for a life drawing art event?!!

COST OF ART TUITION: £50 per person per hour or £40 per person for two-to-one, plus materials and travel costs if applicable. For tailor-made event costs please contact Kate.

A huge thank you for Saturday. It was a tremendous hit with everyone and I think we all gained a little something from your tuition and from doing the grid drawing. It just shows that a little bit of team work works!! Most were quite surprised that even if you can’t really draw, you can produce really credible results. So thank you for your help and guidance. The bride-to-be had an amazing time, after a fairly stressful few weeks trying to organise the wedding and looking after their 5 month old baby! She managed to really relax and didn’t go home until around 10 pm!

It’s a real pleasure being in Kate’s studio and an inspiration. I really appreciate Kate’s demonstrations and the sharing of challenges and successes with the others and Kate’s ability to be flexible to meet our particular needs.

Customer Comments

I really wanted to learn classical techniques and how to apply color and Kate taught me these very well. I have definitely reached my expectations of learning how to apply the layers of medium. The studio is lovely, light and airy in the back of a beautiful garden - very comfortable. Kate is a lovely person, a very talented artist and teacher, very encouraging with a good sense of humour. I wish we’d been here (England) longer.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere for our first introduction to acrylics. My daughter’s daisy canvas looked fantastic - much better effort by far than mine! Terrific chocolate cake too!

No matter what life throws at you with its slings and arrows - take some time out for yourself and spend it in the company of Kate. After three hours and at least three slices of home made cake you would be able to paint anything you put your mind to.

Thank you so much for yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt so much. I am looking forward to putting all I learnt into practice and hopefully see a significant improvement in my ‘portraits’. You are a great teacher, many thanks again and I shall let you know how I get on.
