Criw Celf - Drawing with Light workshop 2010

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is a potential artist in everyone and I have over thirty years of experience working across the age and ability range. I devise and deliver quality art workshops and courses, as well as offer professional development training and mentoring. Over the years I have developed an extensive toolkit of special methods to facilitate each participants creativity. I also regularly work with other practitioners on collaborative, performance-based workshops.

In 2012 I was honoured with a Members Award from the Action for Children’s Arts for my ‘outstanding contribution to the enrichment of children’s lives through the arts’.

My annual Connected Drawing course takes place at Trigonos in Snowdonia, a wonderful residential retreat centre. The next course is on 20-24 May 2018.

Workshops and courses are tailored to suit your needs. Please contact me to discuss details.
