Courses for 2021

Hi everyone

The following online courses will be running from Monday 18th January 2021.  The closing date for payments is 14th January 2021.

“Inspired” 2 – Mixed media course

“Pencil & Paper” 1 – Drawing course

Inspired poster strip


“Inspired” 2: Online Beginners Art Course – Morning course: 10.00am – 10.30am

“Inspired” 2: Online Beginners Art Course – Evening course: 6.30pm – 7.00pm

Please specify which time slot you would like when booking.

In this course we will look at other works of art and used them as inspiration for our own artwork creations.  This may mean recreating all or part of a picture or simply using it as reference for our own ideas and interpretation. This course is designed for beginners but would be suitable for all abilities.

Please note:  you do not need to have completed the previous “Inspired” course in order to join this course.  Both courses are stand alone courses.


The course will explore a range of different media including pencil, watercolour, pastel etc.  Alternative media suggestions will be given for each lesson, so if you don’t have the specific materials used in the example, you will still be able to have a go at the tasks.  The bare minimum you will need for the course are a pencil and something to create colour.  A full list of materials used in the lessons will be included in the booking details.

Pencil & Paper strip


“Pencil & Paper” 1: Online Beginners Drawing Course – Morning course: 10.00am – 10.30am

“Pencil & Paper” 1: Online Beginners Drawing Course – Evening course: 6.30pm – 7.00pm

Please specify which time slot you would like when booking.

This course is specifically designed as a drawing course for beginners using just pencil and paper (and maybe a rubber and pencil sharpener might be handy too) so that those with limited art materials at home are still able to join.  As subject matter, we will use everyday objects from around the home that most of us will have.

The courses will run for 5 weeks and cost £25These courses are free to any NHS employees as a thank you for helping us get through the current situation.  Just send me a photo of your staff card when you book.  10% of all course fees will be donated to Crisis, the national charity for homeless people who, like many charities, will be facing increased challenges this winter due to the coronavirus situation.  For further information, visit their website at: www.crisis.org.uk.


The lessons will be delivered via a 30 minute online live chat/demonstration in which I will explain each task and you will be able to ask any questions.  We will use “Zoom”, an online web conferencing program and you will be sent a link on how to download this with your booking confirmation.  Zoom is free and you don’t need to set up an account.  You will be sent a link before the start of the course which can be used each week to take you straight to the lesson.

Recorded video

Following the lesson you will also receive a link to a 30 minute recorded video of the whole picture being created by myself from start to finish in time lapse together with instructions along the way.

Information sheets

I will also email you an information sheet following the lesson with step by step instructions on how to create the picture.


Once you have produced your picture I would be happy to receive any photos of your work via email, text or WhatsApp and would gladly offer any advice or feedback that you might require.

Showing off

At Leeds Art Group we do like to show off our wonderful creations!  So if you send me a photo of your work there’s a good chance I will put it on our website or our Instagram page @leedsartgroup.  If you’d prefer me not to do this, just let me know.  Or if you’d prefer to do your own showing off then you can join the Leeds Art Group WhatsApp group so that you can all post your masterpieces on there whenever you like and see what the rest of the group are doing.

If you have any questions or would like to book a place please get in touch by either email:leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or telephone: 07788 871286.

Stay safe and I hope to hear from you soon.
