Outline Arts was created out of a passion for Visual Communication, from drawing and illustration to photography and image making. With a background in teaching this subject in F.E, H.E and gallery learning, I decided to create my own workshops and courses in Visual Communication for children and adults. I combine practical techniques with creative approaches in a positive, supported environment. I also offer 1:1 and portfolio preparation tuition. Based in Formby, courses and workshops are delivered from my studio at Clarence House. I am a fully qualified and experienced lecturer in Visual Communication with a current DBS.
I also run holiday art schools, after school drop in workshops and collaborative workshops. For more information, please contact me directly at or on 07706 115436 or follow me on

I can't draw
I can't draw is a drink and draw workshop which encourages the participants to immerse themselves in a drawing circuit of mark making, collage and line drawing. The workshop allows you to be creative in a social setting, with the freedom to experiment with materials and techniques at your own pace. And (most importantly!) there's a bar available if you'd like a drink. We now run I can't draw workshops once a month at Riva Lounge in Formby and 92 degrees in Liverpool. Tickets are £15 and places are limited to 20. Book now to secure a place for a creative, social evening. Gift vouchers also available.
