Rita Smith - Art Workshops



My weekly painting workshops run on Wednesday mornings at my home studio in Plymouth

All levels of ability are welcome, from beginners to more experienced artists wanting support to develop their work. I have a maximum of 5 students in each workshop, so individual attention is guaranteed, and a course of work is tailored to suit each student. My method of teaching is most suitable for students attending on a weekly basis, although I can be flexible for those who cannot commit to every Wednesday, so long as there is space in the class.

The workshops include advice on drawing and painting, using pastel, watercolour, oils, acrylics and mixed media.

During my career as an artist I have combined painting with part-time teaching. I have experience of teaching adults at all levels, and from 1982 to 1992 I taught on the Degree Course at Camberwell School of Art, and from 1992 to 1999 I taught on the Foundation Course at Falmouth College of Art.

WORKSHOPS RUN FROM 9.30 TO 12.30. Refreshments are provided.
