These classes are suitable for adults of all abilities. With a maximum of 6 adults it is a truly bespoke experience. You will spend time working on guided projects with a distinct focus on technique, and projects of your own choice allowing you to develop your own style as you go along.

Roland Minder - 'I did a couple of terms at the ArtShed in St Albans and found Jayne a passionate artist who is willing to share her extensive knowledge with you. She is an inspiring and fantastic teacher who really helps you get creative and brings the best out of you. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone wanting to try an art class.'

Gitanjali Venkatraman - 'Jayne is an incredibly amazing art teacher! She is a fabulous, talented artiste herself and so knowledgeable. I’m sure she knows a million things about materials, techniques and artistes. Jayne encourages, guides and remedies. Always.  There is never any pressure, no right or wrong way,  just pure joy - in making art with Jayne.   She gives of herself so generously to her pupils.  She helped me, an utter novice, produce good art (after 25 years of doing NO painting ) and made me feel what being an artiste might feel like and how to enjoy myself in giving in to the pleasure of working with colours. And for that I am always grateful.'
