Margaret Shaw - Tuition & Workshops

I'm a professional associate of the SAA.  I have tutored art beginners classes/workshops, creative workshops and mentored/coached people to develop their skills.  I work one to one with both beginners and more experienced artists, introducing them to media and techniques. I also give talks on my photography from an artistic perspective.

If you're interested in how I approach my artwork, visit the artwork in progress page on this web site.  You'll see my processes for recent pieces (mistakes included).

I live in Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria so if you're looking for a workshop/tuition within my vicinity contact me to discuss what I can offer you.

Here's what's coming up.

Stormy Sunset Ullswater
The Makers Den, Kirkby Stephen
2 sessions, 6pm – 8pm, 28th November & 5th December

Join me in painting this monochromatic Ullswater sunset with soft pastels. The image will be developed over 2 sessions working from my photo and the original painting.
In session 1 we will concentrate on the sky. Using from the darkest grey to the lightest white and hints of pale blue and yellow ochre, I’ll guide you through developing the dramatic clouds.
In session 2 we will complete the picture creating distance perspective with the mountains and the lake.
You’ll work on toned pastel paper in a maximum group size of 6 to ensure individual attention when needed. Throughout the sessions I’ll introduce you to techniques and tools to produce a pastel painting.
At the end of the workshop you will protect your artwork and mount it to take home ready for framing. All materials are provided, and you’ll also take home a small set of pastels to continue your pastel journey.
Please bring an apron or similar (alternatively wear something old). Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided.
