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, to learn new skills or techniques. Studio courses run with 4 -6 people, others will vary. I can also plan courses tailored to your group’s needs and take individuals on a 1:1 basis occasionally.
“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.”
New Courses and ‘on location’ workshops for Autumn
TOWARDS ABSTRACTION – two courses available, morning and evening. An in depth course to enable beginners to abstraction to develop their practice. You will need to provide your own basic equipment.
INDEPENDENT PROJECT DEVELOPMENT – 20 weeks – Develop your personal art practice through independent project work and group critique. Suitable for improvers only. You will need to provide your own basic equipment.
STUDIO SATURDAY SCHOOL – Ongoing Saturdays taking you through aspects of painting and drawing, for beginners and rusty beginners up for a challenge!. You may book single sessions although you will get more from the sessions if you attend regularly. The idea is that you build your knowledge and practice over time. The three Autumn Saturdays will be focussed on drawing for painting and mark-making choices and methods. You will need to provide basic materials, acrylics, brushes, paper, drawing media. Specific extras needed for the course will be provided.
A SEASONAL SERIES in a STUNNING LOCATION – one or two day mixed media (cut paper, pastels, drawing inks, acrylics…) painting workshop planned for all four seasons, working outdoors in a large and varied garden with the use of Stanton St John Village Hall as a base. Specific materials for the course will be provided. You will need to bring your basic equipment. The fee also includes a donation to the Gresswell Environment Trust.
