Susan R.Wiseman
BA (hons)Int Des. PGCE Art & Des

Based at her home in Solihull, Sue Wiseman carries out exclusive art classes to suit any budding artist in her new studio. Specialising in absolute beginners the classes are designed to promote confidence and bring out the inner artist. Working in various drawing and painting media, classes are guaranteed to be both relaxed and informal.

Sue is a highly qualified and experienced artist and teacher and has been involved with art related projects for over 43 years. Her journey began in the 70's when she attended Birmingham Art College and achieved a 1st class {hons} degree in interior design. Having worked in many different aspects of both commercial and domestic interior projects, her love for colour and texture enabled her to create paintings that perfectly complemented the interior projects she was working on. 

Having qualified in 2001 with a PGCE in Art & Design, 

Sue now concentrates purely on her art and she believes that anyone can create a picture to be proud of!



Although Sue's courses are designed for the beginner in mind, people of all abilities can attend. The workshops are held at Sue's studio at her home in Solihull, 5 minutes away from junctions 5 & 6 of the M42. These are currently held on mondays  or there's a shorter workshop on a Wednesday evening. All workshop classes and courses are small with a maximum of 4 students due to social distancing.  Art equipment is provided unless of course you wish to bring your own and a selection of refreshments are available at all times included in the price. The following workshops and courses below are currently available to book.
