Student Art Gallery and Cath’s Latest Art Work.


Cath runs art/insect workshops from her home-based studio and classrooms on the beautiful Minchinhampton Common, near the lovely Cotswold town of Stroud. These monthly events run on the first and second Monday and Tuesday of every month (unless otherwise stated). They are great fun and very informative. Cath teaches each group about insect anatomy, lifestyle and life cycles in a fun and informal way and then how to paint them by producing a unique and intricate watercolour painting, or using a medium or art style of their choice. 

Due to COVID-19, dates of events listed may change..Please email Cath on cathhodsman@gmail.com to check
