Please note that due to a temporary relocation my tuition is suspended for the foreseeable future.

Tuition Information


I offer three types of tuition in drawing and watercolour from my studio in Derbyshire: private tuition, weekly classes, and day workshops. I am an experienced teacher and artist who has been teaching popular and well received courses both privately and for a large national Adult Education provider for many years. My sessions are available on Zoom, with some availability face-to-face in my studio.

To book any of the tuition I offer, please fill out the form below to discuss availability.

Weekly online Watercolour Courses

Courses will be aimed at either beginners or improvers and will be taught using a combination of live tuition, during which there will be demonstration, staged time for individual practise and time to ask questions. One-to-one feedback and advice will be available in between sessions.

You will need some computer skills and some knowledge of online learning to be able to access this course. Unfortunately help and tuition with this won’t be available during sessions.

Courses run for six weeks and costs £96 per person per course, with the next set of courses beginning 28th September 2021. 

Introduction to Watercolour

This course will suit beginners, those who are a bit rusty and those who feel there are gaps in their knowledge. With an initial focus on learning about the properties of watercolour and the basics of painting with it, we will explore and experiment before moving on to look at the method.

Using provided reference material, we will progress as a group to learn how to paint simple subjects.


Intermediate Watercolour

This course is suited to those who have a basic grasp of the fundamentals of watercolour painting and want to build their skills. We will begin by focusing on simpler methodology and using the basics of watercolour before applying these concepts.

Using provided reference material, we will  progress from painting simple subjects to more complex subjects as your skills develop.


Continuing with Watercolour

This course will focus on further expanding your use of watercolour and will suit those who already have some knowledge of painting with it.

Using the reference material provided, we will continue to learn as a group through demonstration and individual practise and you will over the weeks produce your own set of paintings based on what you have learned.


In-Studio Tuition

These sessions will suit all levels, from beginner to just wanting some extra input. They will run either weekly or fortnightly depending on demand. £25 per session per person, materials not provided. These sessions are scheduled to begin on Monday 4th October and Tuesday 5th October.

Mondays 2pm – 4pm.

Tuesdays 7pm-9pm.


10am – 4pm with breaks throughout. Courses are £90 per person per day.
