Student's comments:

"Bethany is an informative, friendly and patient teacher."

"I really delighted to have attended the course and met a teacher like Bethany online. I have another which I've been going to for almost 2yrs but I think Bethany is a more superior tutor as she obviously has the fine art and classical training and my work has vastly improved since doing classes with her."

"I am learning something new and have been able to practice what I have learnt each week and then moving on to something new the following week. It was just Great."

"I have enjoyed learning how to draw and paint with a patient teacher and likeminded students."

"Excellent instructor with a relaxing voice which via zoom is very important."

"I have been taking part in Bethany's courses and workshops for several years, never having done any art before. Her patient and expert tuition has been an inspiration. She is extremely knowledgeable and talented in every medium and manages to enthuse all abilities with her carefully planned sessions. Seeing my art going from strength to strength I can't recommend her enough. Thank you, Bethany."

"I feel more capable with watercolour, which gives confidence to progress."

"I really enjoyed the course, above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend."

"I loved the course and Bethany made it very easy to follow."

"This course has been the best part of my week. Bravo Bethany!"

"Bethany was a great tutor. The lessons were really informative."

"This Course showed me exactly what I wanted to learn. I enjoyed watching Bethany demonstrate all the different techniques."

"I have really enjoyed this challenging and interesting course. Have learned loads. Thank you.”

Online Workshops

Click to find out what is coming up!

I have an ongoing programme of online art workshops throughout the year covering a variety of subjects and media.

Nature Journaling (sessions once a Month)
Coloured Pencils
Soft Pastels
and more!

All workshops are held on Zoom and my overhead camera gives a clear view of my painting/drawing.

Most sessions are approximately two hours long. There is always plenty of time to ask questions and I will make some time for individual feedback on your artwork at the end of the session. Occasionally workshops will be comprised of two or more sessions on different days/weeks.

All workshops are recorded and a link is emailed to participants after the event. If you cannot make the workshop time/date you can still take part by catching up later with the recording. ...more

One-to-One Art Tuition/Mentoring (Online)

These sessions are personalized to suit the level, pace, and interests of each individual. I can cover a range of subjects and media to suit you. If you would like weekly, occasional, or one-off tuition then do get in contact. Sessions take place on Zoom and may also include email feedback/notes/resources as required.

• School / home schooled pupils
• Students on a further/higher education course (college or University)
• Students seeking help creating a portfolio of work.
• Mature learners who wish to make a change in direction or enter education
• Emerging Artists seeking creative direction and development

One-to-one tuition sessions are ideal for gaining confidence and direction, learning specific drawing and painting techniques, finding guidance with a project or for students looking for support and suggestions in creating portfolios or achieving art qualifications. My aim is to help each individual improve their technical skills, enjoy their learning and gain confidence so that they can develop as artists. ...more
