Hello and welcome,

I’ve loved the community that has grown up around my Online Art courses.

Head to the new Summer Series here or read more about the Spring Series below.

I have put together a series of workshops for the Spring Series so we can work together building skills and confidence over the coming months. I’ll be covering the topics listed below as well as areas that come up during the workshops. You can buy all 6 or individual workshops, depending on your preference. You can join at any stage as the workshops are all recorded so you can catch up on missed weeks.

My two hour demonstrations, will, as before, show you my process, meaning you can learn from techniques that I will explain and demonstrate. You’ll learn some pastel techniques which you can use for your own projects and develop artwork taking inspiration from scenes that I’ll share with you.

I’m keeping our group small, you will find as well as enjoying your development as an artist, you will also be part of our friendly online community.

  • I will be recording demonstrations for flexibility, so you can watch at a time to suit you or at a pace that suits you.
  • I have set up a special Facebook Group for people to share and gain feedback and support on your artworks from me and our online friends.

I will be using Unison Colour Soft Pastels on specialist sanded pastel cards with liquid to create painted pastels. Click here to read more about my suggested materials list. The list below gives you an outline of what we’ll cover. We’ll add to it along the way, responding and adapting as we find new topics to inspire us.
