paint tubes and brushes

Paul Priestley

I have always been passionate about art even from being a little boy, I loved drawing and painting. I went off to college and taught art in schools for many years ,before leaving teaching and setting up my own business running brilliant art events in schools, based around the great artists and adult art workshops.

I also ran interactive art experiences and art events for a wide range of corporate clients, including HSBC, Thames Water, Appletizer. Qatar Oil, Land Rover, National Trust, Eastnor and Sudeley Castles. But a large part of my time over the past few years, has been teaching art courses to adults who like children, often suffer more from a lack of confidence, than ability. It is amazing the number of adults who remember an art teacher telling them, in the dim and distant past, that their work was rubbish, or they would be better off doing something else.

Thankfully, things have moved on and are much better than they once were. Still, I see one of my roles as instilling confidence in people, showing them how amazing their work can be when shown techniques, methods and ideas in a positive step by step approach, hence my art tutorials.

I hope you find my art tutorials inspiring and hopefully, with a bit of luck, they might contribute in some way to making you the artist you have always wanted to be.
