Online Art Lessons for Kids and Adults

Learning art online

Are you looking for art lessons for yourself or your children?  I have been teaching art to children ages 5 to 18 for nearly 20 years.  I offer a variety of online art lessons for children of all ages. I have also been teaching art lessons to adults.  They are fun, light-hearted, full of information and how to use all kinds of art materials.


Art Lessons Online - Every Friday at 2pm

Every Friday at 2pm I teach an online art lesson for children.  For over a year, I have been delivering art lessons online to children all over the world, from Scotland to Peru to Minnesota!  It's been amazing.  I keep my Eventbrite fresh and up to date with new lessons each month.  When in doubt, click on this link to see what's on offer.  Tickets range from £4 - £7.  


 Art Retreat at Home

(Illustration by Cassandra Harrison)

During the last weekend of January, Edinburgh bookbinding artist extraordinaire Cassandra Barron and I will walk you through the creative process of creating a reusable artist's sketchbook.  Getting started is often the hardest part when it comes to breaking in a new sketchbook.  I will guide the group through a creative project to decorate the inside cover of our new books. On Sunday, Super Star Yoga teacher Sarah-Alexandra will guide us through  some yoga moves to connect with our bodies, stretch, relax.  I will then teach a meditative art activity to add into your gorgeous new artist book.

Spaces are limited to 30 people for this session.  Please do let me know if you would like to receive notice when tickets for this event go on sale. 

Urban Sketching with Mark Kirkham (Edinburgh Sketcher) and Cassandra Harrison

Join Edinburgh Sketcher Mark Kirkham the first and third Tuesdays of the month to explore Edinburgh through a series of drawings.  We have a lovely community of artists from beginners to hobbyists to professionals, joining together to learn about our city and learn new drawing techniques.

We often have special guests such as comedian Jo Caulfield, architect David Blaikie and architectural historian Professor Richard Rodgers.  We even had cellist Laura Seargant join us and play whilst we drew the Usher Hall.  

In our sessions we explore using different materials such a charcoal, pens, markers, coloured pencils and more.  Please join us for our next session.  To find out more and buy tickets please visit our Eventbrite ticket page. 


Art History Sessions for Adults

What about art lessons for yourself?  Have you wanted to know a bit about Art History?  Here you will find stories of perseverance, hope, love, anger (yeah, we've all been there).  Not only are these classes packed with stories about the artists and their work, we learn about their techniques and try them for ourselves.  Want to know more about these art classes for adults?  Please contact me to book in a group session.
