Hello and welcome to the Abbotts Ann Arts website from Kelly Jenkins
"My classes are always relaxed and friendly, yet suitably structured to build your confidence, whilst allowing you the space and time to explore and play, to push your own artistic boundaries and to break a few artistic rules along the way! My courses are certainly not a paint by numbers affair! My approach is to arm you with the knowledge and understanding of techniques and mediums employed by professional artists and to encourage you to play with them, experiment and take risks with your art; be brave enough to make mistakes to find your own unique approach. I subtley differentiate my classes to ensure that everyone at every level develops at their desired pace to nurture their own artistic style of expression." Kelly Jenkins.
Kelly's exclusive classes and always kept to a small capacity, ensuring they remain informal so that 1-to-1 tuition and guidance as well as space to play is plentiful.
