Quick Start Art Oil Painting Workshops


    I founded Quick Start Art in 2012 and get a real buzz from teaching people to draw and paint. I’m 90% self-taught so it’s from this thirst for learning that I draw when I’m designing a workshop for students. It’s basically everything I wished I’d been taught at college! I currently run two-day self-contained Oil Painting workshops.

    Unlike a lot of other workshops there are no expensive kit-lists, ALL materials are supplied for the days and I try and source the best materials I can. Tools do not make the artist, but they can help! We use the amazing Michael Harding Oil Paints and Rosemary & Co Brushes so you get to sample some of the best materials available on the market. It is very important to me that my students have a special day, for some it can be their first experience of art for decades.

    It’s my mission to set you off on your artistic journey on the right foot. Quick Start Art isn’t about cutting corners, it’s all about cutting out frustration. Constructive criticism is promoted, but always in a positive and supportive environment. Visit for the latest news on forthcoming workshops and email to arrange the start of your artistic adventure. Come and join in the fun, Quick Start Your Art!
