Vicki Norman – (Oils, Drawing & Painting)


Highly recommended artist tutor from Shropshire, bases her teaching on principles, therefore allowing most disciplines and levels of experience to develop, trained in Fine Art with Printmaking

Vicki is a great/brilliant/superb teacher (see her feedback) – she believes in the importance of the fundamentals and gets rave reviews from her students, many of whom have been on many courses with many tutors and single her out as one of, if not, the best. Vicki says herself that she never stops developing as an artist and a teacher, and this manifests itself in her classes, where there is a feeling of progress and united pride in what has been achieved.
