Here you will find details for my online tutorials, art workshops and sketching holidays in the UK and France. These are for anyone who wants to learn, develop or improve their drawing, painting and observational skills. Informal and delivered with plenty of humour, these workshops invite you to face your fear of imperfection, embrace the unknown, experiment with different techniques and materials, connect with a new community and find your own unique artistic style.
I love teaching, helping and inspiring people to live more creative lives. As well as a web designer and exhibiting artist I am also a passionate sketcher, so you'll also see below how to join the growing Urban Sketchers Languedoc chapter in the south of France.
I look forward to meeting you!
What a superb tutorial!
I found Annette’s method of teaching very easy to follow .
I was really happy with my finished sketch and look forward to the next one.
Annette’s guided tutorials are easy to follow. Her calming, instructive voice leads you through each step clearly and result in a sketch of your very own making. Enjoy
I commissioned Annette to make a watercolour painting of our house in Cruzy as a surprise birthday present for my husband. She delivered and more! It’s a beautiful painting and catches the feel of the house perfectly – Thank you SO much Annette! You can post a picture of it if you like and for those who would like to rent it for a week or two can visit us on www.villainlanguedoc.com or fb page Villa in Languedoc
I commissioned Annette to paint portraits of my two dogs as a present for my husband – I was honestly overwhelmed at how she captured their personalities – totally over the moon and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her art and talent !
I had a great week learning to sketch with Annette. As an absolute beginner I was a little uncertain and lacking confidence but Annette was super helpful and as the week went on I started to produce some art that I was actually quite proud of. The other students were great company and the whole week was thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
