‘Arty Learners’ Christmas Cards 2018

A little late, but as promised, here are the Painted Christmas Cards received from my learners, for Christmas 2018.  Some traditional and some not, they are not in any order, and you need to view them all.

Some were printed by a local print company’s, from the actual paintings and some were originals made into cards.

As always, I was pleased to receive each and every one.

Congratulations to each learner that they belong too, well done.


Happy New Year to you All

To One and All, Have a very Happy and Healthy 2019 from Art with Yvette.


Merry Christmas to you All

Wishing you All, a Very Happy Christmas, thank you for following my blog and to all that attend my Classes and Workshops, have a lovely Christmas.  I have received a smashing amount of cards, that have been printed from paintings completed by my learners, Thank You.  I will let you see them in my next ‘Art with Yvette’ Blog Post.

Merry Christmas

Truro Arts Company – Pastel Demo/Workshop Round-up.

On August 7th 2018, Truro Arts Company invited me to run a Demo/Workshop using Sennelier Soft Pastels.  In just 2 hrs the results of those that attended were without doubt brilliant.  Everyone worked hard following on from my step by step demo.  The results speak for themselves!


I am pleased to announce that Truro Arts Company have asked me back again next year,  for 2 full day workshops, the first one in ‘Soft Pastels’ ( 22nd July 2019) and the second is in ‘Watercolour and Soft Pastels Combined’ 30th September 2019).

You will be able to book your place for next years workshops through Truro Arts Company shortly.
