New Year 2021 Online Course

***NOW ALL BOOKED UP BUT CHECK BACK EARLY FEB FOR THE NEXT 6 WEEK ART COURSE***

Our Arty Travel Adventure

Starting from Sat 2nd January 2021: Let’s whisk you away on an exciting artistic tour of the world!

Each week we will drop in on a different exotic country to take in the breath-taking views and focus on the diversity of nature. From gorillas in the Ugandan mountains, to the abundance of sea life in the bright coral reefs of the Pacific. Along the way we will be experiencing the stillness of Wadi Rum’s desert landscape before hopping off to a rainforest to drink in the incredible beauty and sounds of so many birds and animals. We will have an excursion to Japan to create some Manga and see their famous cherry blossom, and dart off to the heat of Africa to paint elephants playing at a waterhole.

The 6 week course is now available to book for children aged 10 and above, and also adults who want to push themselves to try something new. It is aimed at those who enjoy art and nature, and keen students who wish to explore different art media, including ink, watercolour, charcoal, chalk, pastels, and acrylics. 

The pre-recorded tutorials range from 50 – 90 mins, and the subjects are with nature at their core. This pre-recorded format means you can relax into each tutorial, pausing it when you need a break or wish to really take your time. Using an easy to follow step-by-step format in each session, Sally first teaches you how to draw your subject, taking you on a journey all the way through to adding final details to really make your masterpiece zing!

Spaces are limited, due to the live aspect of this course.

Support and Live Feedback

Sally offers full support along your arty journey, including a short weekly one-to-one online zoom feedback session upon completion of each week’s tutorial, to talk about your experience and to answer any questions you may have.

Read what parents and students have been saying so far...

“Thank you so so much to Sally for the most amazing art sessions. Your creations and supporting videos really inspire the kids, and give them a range of ideas and techniques for future artwork.

Your 1:1 follow-up sessions are enjoyable, give the kids confidence, and really helpful tips and advice. We could not recommend Sally’s courses more highly for budding artists!”

 

“You are, as I’m sure you’ve heard over and over, a very talented artist and very talented teacher – PARTICULARLY as this is all on line!!! Lucy’s really loving it still and her colourful hedgehog is super!!”

 

“Thank you so much Josh is very much enjoying his art and it is a great outlet in these strange times. All credit to you Sally he loves the way you teach the classes and you make it so easy to follow.”

 

“Fantastic paintings as always, Sally you really are inspiring to the children.”

 

“Sophie has loved doing your summer online sessions, thank you so much.  It’s lovely to hear your calm arty voice in the house, and I am super impressed at how well all the technology works, you are a mega tech whizz as well as animal artist supreme.  As soon as she saw that you were carrying on she asked me to book it straight away!”

 

“I really enjoy the lessons, they are fun and I like learning different techniques.” 

 

“Wow! Amazing – they are all fantastic and the children should be so proud! It must be the good teaching :)”

 

“Abi is really enjoying the art and immediately said ‘yes’ when I asked her if she’d like to do the Autumn course. She is learning so much and it’s great to see her confidence in her artwork learning.”

 

“She has always liked art but I hadn’t really seen her develop as she didn’t know about different techniques. It’s been wonderful to see her developing and enjoying learning different techniques from you. It’s great that she gets to use different mediums – even blackberries. She looks so relaxed too when doing the art and I think that’s been lovely too in these slightly strange times!”

 

 “I really enjoyed doing this one. I love that with nature and mushrooms, they are not perfect so if you make it a slightly different shape it doesn’t matter! I really liked using the red pencil because I have never used a water one before and it was very satisfying! Of course I also loved doing the splatter which is always fun and creates a great effect!”

 

“With coffee and blackberry juice, this is awesome work. Thanks @sally_animal_artist you’re an amazing teacher. It’s such a lovely course we love it.”
