Open art sessions in Skipton for all abilities, your art your way guided by Kate

My little bird


Open Art Sessions... are open to all abilities and all mediums (with the exception of oils) and run each Wednesday from 1-3pm except over Christmas/New Year

There is a free car park directly across from the Village Hall

All artists work on what they find inspiring with guidance given by Kate.
Places are limited to 9 maximum to ensure the group remains small enough to be friendly and ensure everyone has plenty of support. This is a lovely group of very welcoming and supportive artists

These sessions are 'yours' and every artist progresses at their own pace.

It is a painless way to absorb information and develop skills, find your own style, make new friends and enjoy yourself!

What's included in the price?

The limited number of artists enables me to provide 1-2-1 coaching at an affordable cost to you, within a very welcoming, friendly and supportive group of artists of all abilities.

Tea and coffee are available.

Since all artists are working on their own projects, materials are not provided for these sessions.

Art and painting has come to life for a true beginner with the patience and knowledge of a very understanding tutor. Kate has been amazing and the classes a joy to attend.

This is a wonderful course. I have learned so much and produced work that I would never have thought possible, improving all the time. Thank you Katy.
