release your creativity and paint what your really want to paint

one to one tuition, art classes and workshops arranged to suit you

studio space provided

What level should I be at?

It doesn't matter. I will tailor the tuition to match your experience.

What medium will I use?

whatever you want to. whatever your happiest with or want to experiment with.

How long will I need?

if you want a taster or refresher then not long - perhaps just one two hour session. if you want to learn in some depth then five or six sessions are in order.

Can I bring a friend?

yes, I have two working studios. if you bring a friend it shares the cost some and can be more fun but I will concentrate on each of you separately so you do not aim to paint alike

What is the goal?

to learn to paint the way YOU want to paint. Not like me, not like anyone else, to find your own way.

painting is creating and creating is about thinking new thoughts triggering new ideas

How much does it cost?

I charge £25 per hour for tuition. typically a day's course starts at ten and ends at four. I teach for two hours over the day the rest is painting time. so a day costs £50 A five day workshop costs £250

What do I need to bring?

bring you usual painting equipment. anything you don't have I can probably provide. beginners need to bring nothing.

How is the course structured?

typically I teach, you paint, we review. I am always there when you paint but at pains not to intrude. as you progress we add new understandings and techniques that match your needs

How do the workshops work?

before the pandemic I ran four or five day workshops for up to six students. there is space here to paint and students took the opportunity to explore around here for subjects to paint.

Will I learn to paint like you?

No! you will benefit from learning methods and technique but the emphasis is always to find the painting direction for you.

Paintings for sale directly from the artist - Alan Brain Art

I love to paint, I love to teach and I feel lucky that I have managed to do both for a good part of my life. I discovered art about 25 years ago and decided then that I must paint. ten years later I started to teach with the object of helping painters to find their OWN way to paint, not my way or indeed anyone's way, simply their way. And it is as pleasing to me now as much as ever - releasing individuality -  it's just wonderful!
