ABOUT FOR THE
LOVE OF ART
For The LOVE Of ART was created to provide unique, personalised and enjoyable art tuition for adults and children. We believe that with practice and the right knowledge, anyone can be an artist - and have fun whilst doing it!
For The LOVE Of ART offers weekly adult and children's art classes, one-off workshops, 1-1 tuition, art parties and much more!
We cover a huge range of media including water colour paint, acrylic paint, tonal pencil, colour pencils, inks, pen, printmaking, chalk, oil pastel and sculpture.
Whether you are a child or adult, an anxious beginner or an expert, someone looking to learn a new skill or simply a way to relax, socialise or be mindful, we would love to hear from you.

CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS
ADULT ART CLASSES
Adult classes are taught through individual projects and are skills based, all materials are provided. These adult art classes are specifically designed for beginners and improvers and focus on drawing and painting in watercolours. These are fun, friendly and relaxed classes which run on Wednesday afternoons at The Old School in Highcliffe and Saturday mornings at the Milford on Sea Community Centre.
OUTDOOR ART CLASSES
Have you ever tried drawing or painting 'en plein air'? If you'd like to give this a go, then you will love to try one of my fun art classes for adults that take place outside! They are suitable for beginners and all art materials will be provided.
Small class sizes for personalised tutoring.
1-1 TUITION - ADULTS
Learning is personalised to your individual needs and wishes, by teaching you what you would like to learn, letting you guide the content of the sessions.
Picasso said, 'Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up.'
As an experienced teacher, I am available for workshops. I can come to you to deliver a session on any topic of your choice and tailor it specifically to the individuals - if you are looking for a unique party, a workshop for colleagues or for a community interest group, then please get in touch to find out more.
*Workshops will run online until it is safe to do so in person.
1-1 TUITION - CHILDREN
As a former Head of Art, I have experience guiding Secondary School Students through both GCSE and Art A-Levels. I can work closely with your child to improve skills, develop ideas for project work (coursework modules) and find artists/movements to influence your work but I am also able to work with younger children who have a special interest in all things creative.
FREE ART ACTIVITY PDFS
Scroll down to find FREE art activity downloads. These art activities are focused on mindfulness and are all about the relaxing art process. You can find timelapse videos to accompany these PDF instructions on my Instagram @fortheloveofartclasses.
These PDFs are shorter versions of the mini art projects available to buy in my shop so you can try before you buy!
ONLINE MINI ART PROJECTS
NEW! Each short project teaches some fundamental skills which you can later apply to create an impressive artwork.
These projects have been deliberately designed to use as few specialist materials as possible so you should be able to complete them without spending a fortune on art materials.
