Art Classes

Monday art classes at Midlands Arts Centre in Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham. I have been teaching at MAC for over 14 years and have many students who are long-term attendees. These classes are lively and enjoyable, as you can see in the testimonials here. Please see the MAC Birmingham website (in the Links tab) for details of my classes.

To see the quality of the work produced in my classes please take a look at the current Made At MAC exhibition, which is on all this year at Midlands Art Centre. Further student works are on Facebook at @htarrstudents.

Tuesday Art Classes. I am currently planning the Autumn term programme for classes in East Staffordshire and on-line via Zoom (which was a great success during lockdown). Please message me to be kept up to date on these sessions.

I am also available to provide oil or acrylic painting demonstrations and critique evenings for art societies around the West Midlands. Please visit my YouTube channel, via the Links page, to get an idea of my demonstrations.
These are some student testimonials from my Practical Visual Enquiry, and Introduction to Art Techniques classes at Midlands Arts Centre from January 2015:
