ALL ARTWORK IS PRODUCED BY YOUNG ARTISTS STUDENTS.
Young Artist

"Nicki's lessons have given my children huge artistic confidence and ability - not just in their own skills, but in their understanding and knowledge of artists past and presents. I am stunned at which artists they can now recognize in galleries. And they love the lessons."

My son was a pupil of Nicki Whiteway’s for nearly ten years. During that time he went from being a child who liked to draw to a well-rounded artist of great ability, who is now studying art as one of his A-levels. His success is due very largely to the encouragement and support he received in his lessons with Nicki. Her skill lies in fostering self-expression while also suggesting ways of developing ideas. Her relaxed yet stimulating method of teaching meant that her lessons were like conversations between friends. She is a naturally creative and good-humoured person. I am quite sure that any child's artistic potential would flourish in the care of Young Artist. It is a group of friendly, enthusiastic and committed artists, who have a particular knack of getting on with children. Helen Gunn

Having had 3 children enjoying Nicki's amazing classes over the last six years I cannot recommend her highly enough. Not only is she an inspirational art teacher about her subject, she gives the children confidence & analytical skills about all the different aspects of art. They are kept to task with a big smile and for boys needing a bit of encouragement Nicki's kind words and warmth makes them feel like they can achieve anything! The art birthday parties were a huge hit...duvet covers & pillowcases designed by your friends - perfect!

"Nicki and her wonderful team of teachers have been teaching our 5 children for the last ten years, since each one of them was 5 years old. The children have loved every lesson, have learnt an enormous amount about the different media and have acquired invaluable skills. Nicki has given them strong foundations in art and instilled in them great enthusiasm while supporting them to create some extraordinary and varied works they are all very proud of. Their art lessons with Young Artist has been a hugely formative part of their education. Thank you Nicki for everything and above all for your true and keen interest in the children and your real understanding of each one of them."

"Young Artist has provided us with wonderful, caring and dynamic Art Teachers for our after school clubs for many years and the clubs have grown in popularity year on year and are thriving and much enjoyed by all. They offer children the opportunity to learn new skills in a fun and relaxed setting as well as allowing and encouraging the children to explore their own ideas and creativity".

Lucie Moore

"My daughter Holly attended classes at Young Artist for many years after it had been recommended warmly by some friends. She had great fun and her creative work improved to the point that she received 100% in each of her three GCSE art exams. She was not a particularly confident artist whenshe started and I attribute her improvement to Nicki Whiteway's inspiring teaching."

Veronica Faulkes

"Young Artists has been teaching my daughter and her friends for two years now and we continue to be thrilled by the imagination and dedication of the teachers. The girls absolutely love the classes and look forward to them each week."
