If you are interested in my visiting your organisation or club for demonstrations, workshops or community projects please read on for details of what I can offer you, how to book and prices:
The amount of these I can do per year is limited, as I also teach regular classes (Fridays but not every single week) and one day courses, weekdays and Saturdays.Occasionally I can do an evening session.
Watercolour Botanical painting
Pen and wash (any subject)
Colour mixing for watercolours
I can also tailor a session to your needs.
I can paint at an easel, but if you want the techniques demonstration this is best done flat and seen on an overhead projector.
For workshops/one-off classes we can do any subject/medium you choose, within the range of my experience. I do not teach oils and specialise in watercolour, mixed media, drawing and colour mixing.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ART GROUPS:
I am often asked to demonstrate Watercolour techniques at an easel. Whilst I can do this, watercolour is fluid and wet, its success is reliant upon controlling the amount and flow of water, an easel makes this much harder! I realise people need to see, and will use an easel if you don't have a camera and screen set up of some kind so I can work flat. I am happy to use an easel if working on a painting, however if you choose my watercolour techniques demonstration I will need to work flat, as many techniques are troublesome to say the least when at a 90 degree angle. I can also use a microphone if you provide one, although I am quite good at projecting my voice!
I am happy to consider community projects, please contact me with full details, and we can discuss the options. I have taught 3 year olds, elderly people in residential care, and every age in between. I also have experience of teaching those with physical and mental disability as well as those with mental health issues. For your peace of mind I am CRB checked, I can also supply art materials if required. Please note I do not currently teach Oil Painting.
