I run small group and one-to one sessions from my home in Yateley. Current courses are listed below, and I regularly add more so check back if you can’t find what you’re looking for, or let me know if there’s a course you’d like me to run.

In addition to the courses listed below, I also teach portraits for beginners and drawing for beginners. Check back or message me if you are interested in attending future courses.

“Kristin has given me so much confidence and allowed me to fly with my painting in a way that I didn’t think was possible.”


“The analysis is really important to me, finding out what works and what doesn’t, as I’ve always had to analyse outcomes as part of my job.
In addition, in painting, as in cooking, it’s important to be able to rescue paintings that go wrong and lessons give me greater confidence to tackle my homemade disasters!
I have learnt a lot about colour mixing too and of course positive encouragement is so important.”
