Student’s work and model in figure drawing workshop in Moma Machynlleth


My approach is to encourage and support you to feel confident in your creative process. I try to help you work creatively with your inner critic using mindfulness techniques and quick drawing exercises to avoid too much thinking.

My students feel that they are being given permission to play and be expressive

“ Whether you are an experienced artist or a beginner still finding your way, Ruth’s classes are excellent; full of wonderful ideas which stimulate our imagination. There is no pressure to conform but, instead, an invitation to respond to each exercise in a personal way that suits each individual participant.” Diana Reynolds
