Art Classes

Katie Sollohub has been teaching art to all ages for over 15 years. With a wealth of experience and knowledge she encourages an alternative approach to traditional art practice.

“My approach to teaching is about freeing up expectations and enjoying the journey of discovery. In order to increase possibilities I encourage students to develop and explore their own ideas leading to exciting and unexpected responses.”

Available for one off workshops, talks and demonstrations, as well as regular classes, short courses and one to one. She also offers Skype tutorials for long distance learning.
