I have a lovely studio in Turweston, just outside Brackley, Northamptonshire where I share my drawing/painting skills and experience with children and adults.

These consist of ‘Weekly, term time art classes‘ or one off  ‘Saturday Day Workshops‘, one off ‘Adult & Child Workshops‘  or ‘Holiday workshops for Children

Art Classes and Workshops can be booked through my online booking system below.


Weekly Adult Classes

My fun and informative adult weekly classes are held on a Tuesday morning (2.5 hours), Thursday evening (2 hours) or Friday morning (2.5 hours) with lots of cups of teas, coffees and biscuits!  Weekly classes are booked for half a term (approx 7 weeks depending) As I have been teaching for 18 years with new and existing students, I am flexible in my  teaching approach to cater for all abilities from beginners to experienced.

I always bring a project to class to demonstrate for those who would like a more step by step approach whilst also enabling students to work on their own projects that I can offer my assistance with if they would like help. As a very versatile, working professional artist I am able to teach the following mediums – Oils, acrylics, watercolours, inks and soft pastels and am happy to be led by the class which medium they would like to use for that half term of classes.

Materials are generally not included, however if you are new, a beginner or do not have a particular medium I don’t mind you using my materials to start with and ask for a small donation in the pot.

Children’s Classes

I offer weekly children’s drawing and painting classes at my studio on a Thursday for 2 hours after school. The weekly classes are booked for a half term (normally 7 weeks depending) I am joined by the amazing, Sue Kayll, who assists me in the children classes, not only is she a brilliant artist but has many years working in schools. We focus on learning good drawing skills as well as experimenting with different mediums. Lots of examples of previous classes’ artwork can be seen on my facebook page ‘Elaine Marston Artist Studio’.

We also offer children’s workshops in the school holidays details are added onto my booking system below.

Materials are included in these classes. Please ensure your child wears scruffy clothes or wears a shirt or apron, it is a painting class so we could get messy 😉

We also offer a unique experience at my studio where you paint alongside your child, children, grandchildren etc. This is a step by step process where I show you how to draw and paint by demonstrating, whilst my assistant Sue is at hand to assist.
