About the Instructor - Jean Kidwell BA
"Art has always been a big part of my life! I am a practising Artist and Art tutor, teaching adult classes locally, and have run an informal evening Art group since 2012. I graduated from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen in 1983 and went on to work in marketing, then teaching. I have twenty two years experience in Early Years teaching, including Special Educational Needs, and involving the use of Creative Art to help develop confidence and expressive individuality.
I love using mixed media in my work, but especially ink pens, watercolour and resists. I take my inspiration from Nature – particularly in trees and old ruined buildings that have been ‘reclaimed’ by natural foliage.
I passionately believe that Art is for everyone, and am enthusiastic in assisting people explore, develop, and build on their own creativity, in a relaxed, fun, and friendly atmosphere."
