2019 - Teaching abroad
Excited to be heading off to France in April to tutor a group on a painting holiday - Pallettes de Gascogne - near Toulouse. The South West of France should give a lot of inspiration for us all for some great watercolours. No more spaces are available on the course but see the website for details.
