Hello, I’m Penelope Milner a professional, prize winning artist, passionate about teaching and sharing my love of art with anyone who has the motivation and enthusiasm to learn.
I am offering one to one personal tuition.
The advantage of this way of learning is that I will be able to give you feedback on the drawings and paintings you produce at home and help you to move forward with your own personal creativity.
I am happy to take beginners as well as more experienced artists. The course can be tailored to you.
Our first contact will be through a skype call where we can discuss your needs and how many sessions you would like. I will then put together a proposal to be agreed before we begin.
You may choose a package of three lessons or opt for a whole course of 10. We will decide in advance a timetable for our sessions; between once a week and once a month. I advise for the students that this is regular, to help with your motivation in moving forwards.
As we progress we can build up a relationship based around your art.
Each lesson will consist of a demonstration video accompanied by exercises to work on in your own home. In a one to one tutorial, I can then offer a critique of your work, suggesting exercises to help you develop. We may study other artist’s work that you admire for particular aspects such as composition and colour.
- In a pastel course over three lessons, I can guide you through improvements in your portrait and figure drawing; achieving volume through light and shade, considering backgrounds,
looking at anatomy and proportion. 150€
- In a 10 lesson course we will start with the basics of line and shading, beginning with the basics. We can then move on at your own rhythm to colour mixing and painting themes which fascinate you: landscape, figure, portrait, townscape etc. 450€

‘Penny manages to integrate basic methods alongside creative work.
She delivers key messages subtly within the context of the course rather than with a sledgehammer. Consequently, I find that I learn a great deal by doing and being guided by Penny to think about why particular approaches work or don’t work.’
‘I have great admiration for her own work and she has taught me SO much and given me confidence to develop my own style – always encouraging, with constructive criticism.’
‘Penny uses her considerable talent as both artist and teacher to support her student’s and in doing so uses a generous dose of humour which makes for a very good all-round experience’
‘Thank you Penny for opening my eyes to the world of pastels!”
