‘With a bubbly personality Joanne ensures that her classes are not only informative but are also great fun. She is a superb, inspirational tutor who is sympathetic to the needs of her students, using demonstrations to inspire and motivate using her loose impressionistic style of painting; personal individual tuition is also an integral part of Joanne’s teaching method, her simplistic fresh style of painting has encouraged many and has ensured that her workshops are always in demand.’

If your Art Society wish to run workshop tuition day/s at their own venue then please contact Joanne to discuss your requirements
