Workshops and painting holidays with Haidee-Jo

Forthcoming workshops and painting holidays

Due to exhibiting and travel commitments I won't have many in person workshops in 2023, but I'm delighted to announce the following two workshops, one in the UK and one in the USA. I'll also be a field painter at the Plein air convention in May (Denver, Colorado) and a guest artist at Patchings festival in July (Nottinghamshire). Plus I'm working on a range of teaching videos and online workshops so please sign up to receive my newsletter if you'd like to hear about these when they are available.

Some of the comments I've received after workshops...

"We all had such a fabulous weekend painting with you Haidee. So lovely to have witnessed these pieces being created. It was a real pleasure to meet you and share some laughs too. Anybody reading this, who has an interest in learning to paint plein air, get yourself booked onto one of Haidee-Jo's courses. You won't be disappointed!"


"I can't thank you enough for your fantastic tutoring of the group last weekend. I've had really positive comments from everyone - there was a great atmosphere and everyone had a wonderful time. I think that was in no small part to your tireless enthusiasm and genuine interest in helping everyone to progress with their painting."  


"Thank you for the wonderful demonstration on thursday night. So many people said how much they had enjoyed it and learnt from your work. You brought a freshness and immediate impact which was delivered in a delightfully relaxed style. We will be getting in touch next year for a workshop. I hope if you can fit us in between gadding about!"

"Was great to meet you on Saturday, and I just wanted to follow-up to say thank you for an excellent demonstration... you were a real hit with the members"

York Art Society


"Thanks so much for the workshop yesterday. I feel really inspired!"



"First, thank you for a great workshop last week at Fulbeck. I found it rewarding and am inspired to paint faster and more decisively"



"The demo was very much appreciated by everyone and we really enjoyed seeing your picture grow. What I found very refreshing was your ability to PAINT and TALK considering everyone's questions and developing your picture as you went. It was interesting watching it come to life as you neared the end. "
