Here you will find details for my online tutorials, art workshops and sketching holidays in the UK and France. These are for anyone who wants to learn, develop or improve their drawing, painting and observational skills. Informal and delivered with plenty of humour, these workshops invite you to face your fear of imperfection, embrace the unknown, experiment with different techniques and materials, connect with a new community and find your own unique artistic style.
I love teaching, helping and inspiring people to live more creative lives. As well as a web designer and exhibiting artist I am also a passionate sketcher, so you'll also see below how to join the growing Urban Sketchers Languedoc chapter in the south of France.
I look forward to meeting you!
I’ve been benefiting from Annette’s online watercolour sketching tutorials. They are enormous fun and structured to include a variety of topics and techniques for the absolute beginner. This is something I’ve wanted to try for years and Annette’s clever teaching has given me the confidence and the skills to have a go. Highly recommended.
Thank you for stretching us, Annette. A completely new style (Faux Stained Glass) for me. What a wonderful day.
Many thanks to Annette for a great introduction to sketching last Saturday in Montpellier. A day packed with information, advice and encouragement. A much needed boost to my confidence. Can’t wait for the next one! 💕💕💕
I went with very low expectations but a secret hope that I might actually be able to do this – Annette said everyone can draw – and she is right!! I did and I can!! Thank you Annette for giving me the confidence to just go for it . We were so lucky that we had a beautiful sunny day (and a fab lunch sitting outside ) Lagrasse is a fabulous location to sketch too.. Annette makes you feel totally at ease and it was lovely to go with 3 other fun lovely women too ! Looking forward to more classes please soon
We are both so delighted with our time spent with you. We so appreciate your kindness, patience and encouragement! You are awesome!
