DSCN3069 xz I am an experienced and qualified teacher. I run courses or workshops from my studio and elsewhere and for other organisations aiming to develop your confidence in pursuing your own practice or simply, learning new skills or techniques. Studio courses run with 4 or 5 people, others will vary. I can also plan courses tailored to your group’s needs and take individuals on a 1:1 basis occasionally.

 Student Feedback:

“Jane was an excellent teacher both in the group work and more structured formal teaching and also at an  individual level where her encouraging and informative comments and instruction were invaluable.”

“excellent, sympathetic and inspiring tutor.”

“Jane has provided great teaching and guidance which has moved on and improved my work considerably. I now have more ideas and ways of working to develop further at home.”

Painting Workshop – composition with mark making and colour proportion – October 14th, 10am to 4pm

This sounds technical but really it is a painting workshop with a focus. The idea is to create new and varied ‘marks’ with a variety of tools including brushes of course, to add energy and expression to your work – and to control colour, beyond just simple colour mixing. You will need a little experience of painting in either acrylic or oil. It will be a fun day with planned tasks and opportunity to apply what you learn to something of your own.

You will need to bring basic materials but some specific items needed for exercises will be supplied along with coffee and tea.

venue: The Community Hub in Horspath, OX33 1RP

cost: £68

To book  and for more information contact me through the website.

This workshop will be repeated in March but will be suitable as a follow on for those who attend the first session too.
