Weekly Adult Art Classes

My Art Classes are aimed at beginners and improvers. I teach acrylics, watercolour, drawing and mixed media. The classes cover a range of skills and techniques inspired by different subjects such as landscape, still life, figurative and abstract art. We also learn about artists and art genres. The groups are friendly and give you regular, uninterrupted time to develop your artistic skills. Members often find they inspire each other and love being with like-minded people.

I have been teaching art since 2001 and was previously a secondary school Teacher of Expressive Arts. I am also a practising Artist and regularly exhibit and sell my work.

“I have been attending Trudi’s art classes on and off for the past 6 years.  Trudi’s vast knowledge and experience, has given me the tools to become a professional artist, exhibiting in galleries, and receiving commissions. I still attend her classes in Lyme Regis, as not only is she a great tutor, the class is a fun social experience.  Trudi offers inspiration which carries onto my own personal art journey.” – Vivienne.
