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!
Nous avons passé un week-end formidable avec Annette à Bizes Minervois les 17 et 18 octobre : Annette nous a guidées avec fermeté et une grande gentillesse pour des exercices très variés et nous a fait découvrir des techniques nouvelles. merci beaucoup Annettte et à la prochaine fois !
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’m a novice, and have been to some of Annette’s classes recently. She’s a kind and patient teacher. If you want to try sketching in a supportive space, I can recommend Annette’s sessions.
A huge thank you for your painting! It looks amazing. We now have plenty of places to hang it, so it’s a great gift!!
I had an 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.
