Whether you are just starting out with your first art class, or returning to drawing and painting after time away, or you are a practising artist ready to break through a plateau, Catherine Kent is here to inspire and guide you to a whole new level.


Renowned and experienced painter, illustrator and teacher Catherine Kent and her rock-star art skills, as well as her ability to explain, instruct and demonstrate with patience and clarity, will help you achieve your artistic goals.



“I really enjoy my weekly lessons with Catherine.  She is such an amazing artist herself, and also has a fantastic teaching style.  She is patient, and takes the time to make sure I learn all the techniques to become a better artist.  I know that all of her students, young & old, love her and her passion for art”. 



My younger students are like sponges. They absorb all that I explain and demonstrate so quickly, mainly due to the fact they are working one to one with me. My aim is to help my younger students develop and find themselves as artists and have lots of fun along the way!   


I can’t imagine a more enjoyable job than mine! Working alongside all my wonderful students on a daily bases in a completely non-intimidating environment. My aim is to explain, demonstrate and inspire my students. In creating Art it enables us to find ourselves and open up a whole world of knowledge, creativity and self-discovery.




“My daughter Bella has been attending weekly art classes with Catherine for a year now. Catherine is always kind and encouraging and gives her the confidence to try new techniques. Bella loves the individual classes that allow her to follow her interests. She has learnt a great deal and is able to apply her new skills when doing art at home. Bella is always excited to go to art and regularly counts down the days to her next class.”

"I have been going to Catherine for close on a year now. My husband and daughter bought me drawing lessons and I have enjoyed it so much I am now a regular. Catherine is patient and I have drawn a portrait of my daughter and now onto a portrait of my son and his partner. and as a one on one with Catherine you do not have to compete with others. I would definitely recommend Catherine."
