teaching & courses

Jill currently tutors with Adult Learning, a faculty of Abingdon & Witney College.


She offers a 60-week drawing course over two years which you can join at either level, starting in September:


Drawing Fom Scratch, for beginners

A thirty-week course for the complete beginner or for those who would like to revisit the basics in drawing. Learn about line and tone (shading), to make objects look three dimensional. Practise perspective, elementary portraiture and figure drawing.


Drawing for Improvers

A thirty-week course for those who have some experience with drawing and would like the challenge of extending their drawing experiences.

Kidlington - Gosford Hill School.


Drawing into Painting

An introduction to acylic paint, over ten-week terms, using place as a starting point to explore the process of mark-making leading to abstracted paintings. A course for those with drawing experience, who want to find a way to familiarise themselves with the paint and it's applications rather than tight representational paintings.

Kidlington - Gosford Hill School


Life Drawing

One-day workshops with both Oxfordshire Skills and Learning Service and privately.



Exercises to improve posture, balance, muscle tone and general wellbeing, underpinned by the principles of the Alexander Technique. Some Pilates and yoga exercises.

Chipping Norton - Glyme Hall, Burford Road.


Sunningwell School of Art


Introduction to Drawing  a condensed 5-week course


Jill, with her painting partner Kerstin, organise holidays to a variety of visually exciting locations. The aim of the holidays are to capture the essence of place by recording colour and design, sketching architecture, flora and fauna and giving consideration to the composition of pictures. Optional tutorials and individual sessions enable you to return home with a visual diary and completed paintings or drawings.



Please note: Due to the regulations set by the Department for Trade and Industry I am no longer offering these holidays
