I am a full time professional artist, exhibiting in over 10 galleries around the UK. I have over 30 years teaching experience working with children and adults aged 11 - 85. 

Workshops 10am - 4pm 

My workshops are suitable for both the beginner and experienced artist wishing to explore new ideas and techniques. Students will be encouraged to loosen up and use a variety of materials and techniques working in a very impressionistic style. 

I specialise in acrylic and mixed media work using any water based materials on paper, board and canvas 

My workshops cost are priced per student from £45 per day rising to £120  for personalised  1 to 1 tuition.

When visiting my studio, students should being their own packed lunch if required.

1 to 2  £100 per day. at Ormscliffe Studio in Bolsover

1 to 3 - 4  £80 per day. at Ormscliffe Studio in Bolsover

If you wish John to use your venue which reduces travelling for all your students and minimises carbon footprint, workshops cost £45 per student per day, with a minimum of 8 and maximum of 15 students. (plus travelling expenses from Bolsover)

John also runs workshops at St Johns Street Gallery in Ashbourne.  The cost of these 2 days courses will be £175 including 2 course lunch, plus tea and coffee throughout the day.

Demonstrations

Typically, John will usually work on two paintings during a two hour demonstration but this is negotiable.  The subject of the demonstration is selected from a variety of subject matter such as seascapes, landscapes, woodland, moorland and rivers.  John works in acrylics during a demonstration.  Like the artist, demonstrations are informative and entertaining, John does not work in silence!
