Back Room Art has been founded on 10 years of Art teaching of children in schools, young people in colleges and adults in informal teaching environments. I have an honours degree in Fine Art Painting and Post Graduate Art Teaching qualification GTP.
I am always being told "I can't draw", or "I was good at this at school, I wish I'd carried on". These art classes are aimed at age 16+ and all ranges in ability.
You may be starting from scratch, have a bit of knowledge, perhaps you did it years ago and want to restart. Are you in need of strengthening your Art portfolio (GCSE, BTEC, A-Level, Degree). Whatever your motivation: encouragement and guidance will be provided at Back Room Art.
The classes are taught in small groups (maximum five) in a homely environment. They run at weekly 90 minute sessions here in Stourbridge. As a student you will be encouraged to provide your own starting point or aim in the type of Art that you would like to create. However, inspiration is always close to hand. A range of materials will be supplied to try, but you are asked to purchase your own equipment if a larger scale project is your ambition.
My specialisms include drawing (pencil, graphite, charcoal, chalk and oil pastel), painting (watercolour, poster paints, batik, acrylic and oil) and printing (lino and mono). I also have experience in sculpture (usually with found materials).
