Virtual art workshops and talks for school groups across the world!
I can host virtual drawing and creative workshops for your school or college, with easy and fun drawing work for each pupil and I can even make a virtual art gallery images from the results. My camera rig is set up to film just my hands drawings and demonstrating each activity. All my activities are accessible and can be tailored for all ages and abilities. I have worked with over 50 schools and universities across the UK and overseas and designed workshop sessions relating to current curriculum and study themes. I work with Kings University for their culture award and have also run sessions for teachers and lecturers to make their online sessions more visual and creative.
“The workshops that Jenny led for our students left them inspired with creativity and a sense of purpose. Jenny’s belief that art is for everyone is contagious and empowers everyone she works with. I highly recommend any organisation to collaborate with Jenny, for she can bring a new dimension to your everyday work that is thought-provoking, colourful and fun!”
– Sivaranjani Subramanian, Jitheshraj Scholarship Online Art Workshop
Jenny did a most amazing Q&A with my students in Martinique , French West Indies, about her painting over a Skype video conference in our lecture hall. The students were thrilled and the exchange most exhilarating. They asked many more than the questions they had prepared as Jenny kindly gave us so much time and her passion and enthusiasm were so catchy. Now I have to take all 60 of them to London! Thank you again SO much Jenny!

“Jenny came to our school to work with our year 2 children. She ran a series of workshops to link in with our London topic. She was fantastic with the children, her activities were perfectly pitched and she considered the age of the children. The work produced was vibrant, exciting and colourful and gave the children a great opportunity to be creative. Jenny was very professional and great to work with. We will definitely use her again.” – Hannah Gallagher, year 2 teacher at Dovers Green Infant School.
“The art session that we did with Jenny was fantastic. Her enthusiasm kept the children interested throughout and she modelled howto sketch very well before the children then had a go. It rounded off a wonderful London topic to meet Jenny and sketch some iconic London landmarks with her.” Brad Howarth, Year 6 Yeacher, Wylye Valley School.
“It has been a pleasure having Jenny work with our pupils over the past two days to sketch out and paint our library’s book bench… The children who helped to design and paint the bench are so pleased with the result and grateful to Jenny for bringing their design to life.” –Roseanne Sparkes, Librarian, Broadford Primary School.
