You will be encouraged and inspired to create orginal pieces of work in every class which will kick-start a confident portfolio!

Unlike large franchises the Art Intense workshops are limited to no more than 8 students. This ensures an intimate setting where students are able to hear, see and learn with no trouble caused by large numbers and big tables. 

Everything students need for the workshops are provided so there are no hidden fees/costs, and no need to purchase anything in preparation for the classes. All materials are professional artist quality including easels, artist grade pencils, oil pastels, blenders, colour shapers, professional wash brushes, watercolour paper, sketchbooks, hogs hair brushes, stainless steel painting knives - Just to list a few. 

Students are able to choose individual workshops or a combination of a few rather than having to have to sign up for an extended commitment over a number of months. The workshop options available are beginners drawing, beginners oil pastels and colour theory, beginners watercolour painting, and beginners acrylic painting.

My name is Briony and I am the creator, designer and tutor for Art Intense. I am a professional artist who has exhibited and sold work throughout the UK. I have sold work overseas, and completed commissions for clients across the globe. I run a successful online store where I sell artwork, prints and other merchandise that I design.


I am an accomplished art tutor, with many years experience holding classes for up to 25 students. I present lessons for the new beginner, and to the more advanced student.

Examples of my work can be seen via my portfolio website below.



The Art Intense workshops take place during weekday evenings which means you can unwind from a busy day by learning to draw and paint.


The workshops are split into 3-5 lessons which take place over 3-5 consecutive weeks. The lessons start at 6pm and finishes at 8.30/9pm. We have a short break during each lesson.

If you would like to enquire about upcoming workshop dates please get in contact.


"I have known Briony for about three years, teaching me on an art course.  She has an incredible ability to teach and explain all the procedures you will need to know. 
As I got confidence and improved she let me develop the style I loved and encouraged me to do more of what I felt I needed to do, giving me guidance and help when I needed it.
She is a lovely woman, has a great sense of humour and fun and we had many great conversations. 
I can highly recommend her as an artist."
