Art Classes

Have you ever wanted to learn how to draw and paint...?

In addition to the face-to-face lessons listed below Kerry continues to offer online art lessons, including live 'Zoom' classes & workshops and a selection of tutorial videos.

Learn to paint with watercolours or just dip into your creative side and have a relaxing time painting. Friendly group classes in which to learn new art skills or improve existing ones. We cover the techniques of colour, texture and tone, perspective and the use of additional media in watercolour painting.

You are also welcome to use the sessions as an opportunity to paint what suits you, with plenty of help and advice, whilst in the company of other enthusiastic artists.

Art classes from my studio in Battle, East Sussex

I teach watercolour painting to small groups in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Suitable for beginners and more experienced painters with plenty of one-to-one guidance.

£136 for a block of 6 two-hour sessions (gift vouchers available).

If you are unsure whether a full block of six sessions is right for you, then you are welcome to attend a two-hour group taster session, cost £34.

If you are unable to attend a session and wish to reschedule please let me know at least 48 hours prior to the session.

Mondays, 10:00am - 12:00pm
Tuesdays, 10:00am - 12:00pm
Thursdays, 10:00am - 12:00pm

I am pleased to offer one-on-one watercolour tuition at the rate of £45/hr. If you are a complete beginner we will cover the basics of drawing techniques, colour mixing, perspective and much more. For more advanced students we will develop all aspects of your watercolour skills, experiment with new techniques and learn to loosen up, if needed! (gift vouchers available).

Please contact me for availability of classes.

"Have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my class, can't wait to return later this summer." by S.G. (16/5/2023)

"Having never been to an art class before, I had no idea what to expect, although I imagined I would be taught to draw and paint, step by step, similar to painting by numbers!! However, your classes have been so enjoyable and I am really grateful for your help, support and good humour. My transition from ‘useless’, to being able to produce something with a passing resemblance to the original image has, for me, been amazing! I’ve often felt completely out of my depth, and excited in equal measure, but you have been there, gently guiding me through the maze that is watercolour painting, which has been perfect for me, so thank you." by J.P.
