As of Oct 2016 email me at eastwitching@hotmail.com or call me Alison Fennell on 07415 801 844 for details on my Friday class in Tonteg/Church Village from 1.30-4.30pm

WHERE – Tonteg community centre

LUSCIOUS magical watercolour – come and learn:)!

WHO DO I TEACH and What’s the class size?

I cater for all levels in watercolour and am very patient with beginners and advanced alike.

My class is a friendly group of approx. 8-13 adults of all ages and abilities who pay as they go and bring their own painting gear.




I have been painting in watercolour for over 20 years and earning a living as an artist for 4 years via my website www.eastwitching.etsy.com

I’m a teacher at heart (BSc. Modern Languages, PGCE Primary, Trinity Cert. TESOL)

Spent years teaching supply in primary and special ed schools and taught adults in various situations and countries including basic skills in Wales and English as a foreign language in Spain)

Being self-taught I understand the learning process very well and can empathise with and explain to students on all levels.

My art tutorials feature regularly in Leisure Painter Magazine – the UK’s most popular painting publication

Am energetic, very patient, clear and thorough

I love to set people on their way with watercolour

1) ‘Alison has done watercolour demonstrations at our group- Pentyrch Art Group- for several years.
We always thoroughly enjoy her visits.
She is organised, well prepared and will happily answer questions and share her expertise with members. I have no hesitation in recommending her as an excellent, really friendly and approachable demonstrator. 
Anne Peebles, Pentyrch Art Group.’
2) ” Alison is a very talented and inspirational artist and teacher. I have been lucky enough to attend a workshop at her studio and attend workshops and demonstrations when she visited our art group.
Her teaching style is relaxed and friendly but also very clear and practical.
Alison’s excellent preparation for the sessions and encouragement, enables everyone to achieve and produce a piece of art work they can be proud of.
Finally, whether working one to one or working with a group, Alison’s workshops are both fun and enjoyable.”
Christine Webb – Secretary – Kestrel Art Society, Bridgend
3) I have learned more from Alison in 3 weeks than with other classes that I have taken for over a year!

Sessions are just £12 for 3 hours.


I paint a demo in stages and STOP at each stage to come around and give INDIVIDUAL guidance and help.

The demo is also being filmed and shown on a large TV screen so you get a really brilliant view of what I am doing.

Later in the day I put the video on Youtube for you to look at again!




Free refreshments are available and we stop for a break and chat.




Give me (Alison Fennell) a toot on 07415 801 844 or email me at eastwitching@hotmail.com for full details – see you there!
