"I never thought i could create any art painting, drawing or charcoal. I have been attending Sarah's classes for a couple of years. She is such a brilliant teacher and a great artist. I'm so glad I've found her. Her classes are excellent. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn or improve their skills". Tunde Webster (Google Review)

Big Cats Workshop available at the IWM Show
Lilleshall Hall in 2024!
Big cats have long been a favourite subject of mine to paint and I’ll be running a very special 2 day Big Cat workshop at the spectacular International Watercolour Masters Festival at Lilleshall Hall, TF19 9AT
I’ll be teaching you how to create a gloriously rich colour palette using just four pigments in a steady paced step by step workshop; during which you’ll get to create two majestic creatures using a range of expressive watercolour techniques.
You’ll also find out more about how to choose a good reference photo, how to combine colours effectively, how to loosen up your brush work and how to fix mistakes.
The course is suitable for both beginners and improvers alike and is delivered in a warm, friendly atmosphere and at a steady pace. These courses have always proved very popular and often sell out, so book as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

Times: 10 - 4pm each day
Location: IWM Show, Lilleshall Hall, TF19 9AT
