Everyone can draw! I have a passion for drawing and I aim to create workshop experiences that help you to tap into and build on your own creative skills.

If you haven’t drawn for a long time or think that you can’t, I’ll give you the boost you need to get you started.

If you are an art graduate or practising artist, I’ll provide exciting, creative challenges for you.

Classes are geared to all levels of drawing experience with the focus always on enjoyment of the drawing process and learning from each other.

“Jenny is a wonderful, energetic and imaginative tutor.”

"I come away from the sessions relaxed and with a sense of having learnt something new every time."
