Ali Hargreaves

Ali Hargreaves is an Artist and a qualified teacher (BEd Hons) with over 30 years experience of teaching. Ali runs weekly classes in Poynton, Cheshire, and runs all day workshops and demonstrates regularly for local art societies. She is a PA for the SAA where she has been filmed running live workshops and had several articles published in “Paint” magazine.

Artists of all abilities, including beginners, are welcome and will be given plenty of one-to-one tuition throughout the week.   Based in the heart of the stunning southern French countryside with some studio work combined with visiting quaint local villages and the surrounding area, AlI will be on hand to offer you as much (or as little!) guidance as you need to create some original pieces of art to take home.

FULLY INCLUSIVE OF ALL LESSONS, FOOD & DRINK, EXCURSIONS AND CHATEAU ACCOMMODATION – COURSE NUMBERS LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF 8!

If your partner would like to come along but doesn’t want to participate in the painting, then they are very welcome to come along for just 550€.  There are lots of things to do in the area!
