Art Group

This termly art group is for you if you have done a little bit of painting before, and would love to build on your painting skills and confidence

A space to make art every week for 10 weeks, where you can really get stuck into and complete a few different creative projects, at your own pace, in a supportive and encouraging environment.

You will come away from each week feeling relaxed, energised and feeling incredibly fulfilled – having exercised your creative muscle!

What can I make in the art group?

You could either bring along something you would like to paint, something you are already working on but would like extra help and support with, or just an open mind and a keenness to experiment with all the materials that will be on hand.  I’ll be here to help you with whatever you would like to create.

Plus I can also suggest a whole range of ideas for you to paint if you would prefer to paint in this way.  I will have a wide range of imagery (photographs and pictures of artwork) to inspire you.

Everyone has their own unique goals each term – which could be to have a go at painting portraits, loosen up their painting style, experiment with drawing or new materials, or work on a larger scale.

What level is the art group for?

This mixed ability art group is suitable for you if you have been on any of my courses or workshops before, or if you have painted a bit at home or on a previous course elsewhere.

Other practical information…..

In the art group we use mainly acrylic paint – and there will be a wide range of lovely coloured paints, brushes, palette knives, textured mediums, collage materials and printing materials to use and explore.  Plus you also have the option of trying out drawing and mixed media – trying out other materials including watercolour paints and pencils, pastels and charcoal.

Each session starts off with a fun and fast warm up exercise to help you get into the zone – think the Big Painting Challenge.

This group is for anyone aged 18 or above.

And finally the workshops are small – with up to 6 people – so you will get lots of individual support with your artwork.

What people have to say about the art group ….

“I loved coming to this art group!  It really helped unlock the creative potential that I had forgotten was there and helped to transform my creative and artistic life. It was great to have that time after work, after a long stressful day, to come along and have that space where you could create, design, draw, express, try new things and be artistic, with the amazing help of Jane supporting what was happening.  It was really fun and really interesting and re-opened my eyes to the world of art.” Bella Pratt

“I’ve loved the space to experiment with painting without judgement.  Here, there are no rules so you really can just try things out and see what works for you – I’ve been trying some new techniques and developing my own style so my confidence is building. Also I love having some specific space in my diary each week to spend time painting! Finally, it’s been really inspiring seeing all the different approaches and ideas the others have come.” Sarah Wyatt

“Jane’s group gives you the chance to experiment and try new things! It has helped to build my confidence, knowing that I can ask for advice when needed. It has proven to also be a warm and social environment to be arty in! I leave every session feeling like I’ve achieved something, and had the opportunity to relax and be creative.” Sophie Peet
