Come and draw and paint at whatever your level in a small group in my home studio here in Pontypridd and slightly larger groups at Insole Court in Cardiff.

Classes are limited to 3 maximum in my home and 15 maximum in Insole Court so you will get a lot of one to one tuition from me and a chance to chat to others as we work together in a relaxed atmosphere.

I am Alison Fennell - a professional artist of 25 years and a fully qualified teacher (PGCE, BSc. Hons., Trinity Cert. TESOL).
I am a regular watercolour tutorial writer for Leisure Painter Magazine and my work has been licensed UK-wide by Dunelm, John Lewis and the Museums & Galleries Collection. I have taught a weekly adult watercolour class for 2 years and offer workshops and demos to art societies in South Wales.
This year my work was selected for the 156th Society of Women Artists Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries London.

Sharing my knowledge of art is my passion. I love to expose students to as many media and techniques as possible so they can find their artistic voice - so hop on to one of my courses and enhance your skills and confidence.

I run a variety of 4.5 hour workshops to introduce you to drawing and painting - I offer flowers, animals, landscapes, portraits and more in watercolour, charcoal, pastel, mixed media and pen & wash.

New courses are always in the pipeline.

Email me Alison Fennell at if you have any queries at all.
