The Art Shed

Welcome to the Art Shed

The Art Shed is a working and teaching studio, based in Kinver, South Staffordshire. Its is like an ‘Atelier’ where students learn drawing and painting techniques as well as learning from my own practice. Students undertake drawing and painting projects to advance their learning. Artwork is critiqued in a friendly and supportive environment.

Learning is not done exclusively in the studio. We work outside ( weather permitting), visit galleries and exhibitions.

There is no restriction on the medium, the subject, or the style of drawing and painting. We all like to draw and paint in our own way, and this is encouraged and valued as it brings diversity of styles and learning opportunities.

There are classes as well as one-to-one tuition. Please see the Classes page for more information.

If you are part of a larger group and you would like me to do a workshop/demonstration for you, please use the Contact Me form with details.

Happy Painting
