Penny's Workshops

I have an art studio based in St. John's Worcester, where I host Art Workshops for groups of up to 4 people.

I specialise in teaching Acrylic Pour Asbtract art, which is the new big thing taking hold of America & Europe.  It's great fun, messy and you can get amazing results with absoloutely no previous artistic skill, while becoming more a master of your art as you progress and learn different techniques.

I offer a very relaxed atmosphere, so the emphasis is on 'fun' and enjoying learning something new, that you can keep at the end.

Take the Next Step!

Having enjoyed making your first abstract acrylic pour painting, you may wish to learn some of the other methods or work on a larger painting.  You can do this over 3 sessions of one and a half hours each.  There are many methods you can practice and learn and on the final course you will get the opportunity to put all your new skills together and create a larger canvas painting using your favourite method.  Go to the rates page for prices or contact me directly for more information.


Acrylic Pour Workshop - The session takes between one and a half to two hours from start to finish. During the session you will learn how to mix up the paints and create an abstract pour painting with amazing cells. You will also be able to recreate this at home and have an instruction sheet to take home with you.

You are also welcome to bring a drink with you. This is a fun and relaxed environment with an emphasis on enjoyment!
