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!
Many thanks to Annette for a great introduction to sketching last Saturday in Montpellier. A day packed with information, advice and encouragement. A much needed boost to my confidence. Can’t wait for the next one! 💕💕💕
My husband and I had already bought four of Annette’s sketches before we attended an exhibition of hers in last January. We were completely blown away by all her work and bought two more. If we had more wall space available we would have loved to buy more and had real trouble deciding which two would make the cut! They bring us a great deal of pleasure and we are so glad that we were able to pick them up before the current lockdown.
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
You don’t have to be an artist or any good at drawing to have a fabulous time with Annette. First time sketching and the time flew past. And our sketches actually look like something!!! Great time and learned so much.
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!!
