Art & Painting Tuition


Jeanni is The Nare artist-in-residence. She is an enthusiastic and innovative graduate teacher and freelance artist who believes everyone can paint or sketch once shown how. Her passion for art is infectious and her lessons are highly regarded. 

Jeanni offers guests bespoke tuition at the hotel for all ages and abilities. Individual and group lessons are available from a two hour taster right up to daily lessons during a stay. All the necessary equipment including aprons are provided.

She also offers 30-minute clinics during which she provides feedback and advice on artwork produced by guests. This may be possible by video-link to a guest's room if preferred.

For the next few months Jeanni is also offering private lessons for Nare guests in their home via video-link. All one needs is an internet connection and a video device that can access Google, Zoom, WhatsApp or Facebook.

For all non-artists there is the opportunity to commission a bespoke painting or drawing by Jeanni. This could be a favourite view from The Nare, or a photography of family, friends, pets, or even one's home.

We decided to have an art lesson with Jeanni and we were not disappointed. We had never painted before but Jeanni has was a very effective teacher - we were astonished by the results. It was a lovely activity to do as a family and I highly recommend it.

Jeanni explains her unique methodology:

"A fundamental part of maximising people's potential is teaching them about Visual Awareness. Visual Awareness is the physics of creating images and the viewers’ response to it. In art, that translates as the knowledge and tools to assemble a picture with balance and harmony. I show people the things they have always subconsciously known, but perhaps never fully understood consciously, which unlocks their full artistic potential, in just a few hours.

I teach how to observe life from a completely different perspective, which allows people to sketch and paint to a standard far beyond anything they previously considered possible. Lessons are fun, inspiring and completely bespoke, making them suitable for all ages and abilities. Visual Awareness will only enhance future art lessons and can also prove valuable in other streams of life."
