Budding Artists – Adults


BUDDING ARTISTS  are art classes for adults of all abilities.  Jo believes that being creative is just the tonic everyone needs right now so is planning lots of classes and workshops in 2021. There are new ‘Beginners class’ starting in the spring, zoom and drawing lessons starting in 2021.  Jo plans lessons that are engaging and work through the formal elements of art. The Beginners course begins with building confidence with drawing and will move on to painting with water based paints. Each term several masters of art are looked at for inspiration and new techniques, subjects and mediums are introduced. The subject often links to the time of year.  Please get in touch if you are interested so Jo can put you with the right class.



Jo runs Budding Artists classes and workshops for adults in various venues throughout Surrey. These friendly art groups have inspired many students to create wonderful pieces of art. These art classes are for all ages and abilities and a fun way to spend a few hours learning a new skill. Her classes take place at her studio in Oaks park or there are now a ‘zoom’ options. Jo Sharpe has a wonderful light and airy studio situated behind the cafe in Oaks park near the beautiful lavender fields. It is here that her students are inspired by nature all around them. Jo teaches a variety of art techniques to her students. She runs Beginners classes and Intermediate classes. She also runs Art in the Park workshops for those unable to commit to weekly sessions. So if you hear about Jo’s Budding Artists classes and workshops be sure to sign up to a session or two! As well as art workshops Jo sells her art, from her online store and from her art studio. Furthermore, many of her pieces can be found at www.saatchiart.com.
