Have your own bespoke drawing workshop – tailored for art groups, organisations & individuals. For more info


A very warm welcome back to my regular students, I am looking forward to this year and our progress together.

If you are browsing my workshops pages for the first time and think you might be interested, why not join us for a relaxing day on a drawing workshop and enjoy the friendly atmosphere.

Find out about Graphite Pencils, colour Drawing Pencils, and other tools of the trade.
Whether experienced or a beginner, the workshops are a fun, social and relaxed day.

All materials for the day are provided and other drawing products will be available to buy. You may if you wish bring a photograph of your own to draw but this is not essential.

Tea and coffee are available but please bring a packed lunch (cold or to heat as we have extensive facilities). *BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL*

For more information and to book a place on one or more of the workshops, please contact Joanne: Mob: 07837 927020 | email:


Please check back soon for new dates


Hi just a quick few lines to say Thank You for such an enjoyable hour or so last Thursday at the Pencil Museum in Keswick.

I cannot draw (and certainly don’t pretend to!), but was thrilled by my Birch Tree effort – that I had no idea I was drawing! I think the Hare was the star of the day.

I did buy a pad and some pencils and will no doubt draw everything with a birch tree in it!

Best Wishes

Just attended a short demonstration by Joanne Kell with my local art group, I was very impressed by the relaxed way she explained how she achieved her amazing results in graphite and coloured pencil, She took time to explain step by step the process of producing good artwork with good clear examples. Talking afterwards with a number of the group, I was not the only one who enjoyed her relaxed style and sense of humour. Regards

There is no pressure from Joanne or the group. It is really relaxed and friendly. There are no expectations, you can do your own thing and work at your own pace. Joanne is always on hand to give valuable advice and is always patient.

At the end of each class it is always nice to know that in a few weeks you can look forward to meeting up again, with a nice bunch of people and a really enthusiastic teacher.

Thank you Joanne for giving me my confidence back, and encouraging me to produce some interesting pieces of art.


Just a short note to say a big ‘thank you’ for the workshop last Tuesday evening. We all enjoyed ourselves and everyone I have spoken to have attempted to create the hare and are going to try and draw other animals and birds too. Your sheets have been very helpful and we are feeling inspired! Thanks once again.

Joanne’s workshops (Denshaw Village) have taught me valuable drawing techniques but more importantly, have greatly boosted my confidence.

Hello Joanne, I really enjoyed the workshop at Keswick on Friday and felt I learned a great deal from you. Thank you for a great day.
Many thanks

Hi Joanne, Just to say a big ‘thank you’ from us all at the Art group, for a super workshop. We all enjoyed it very much, and feel inspired to have a go at wildlife drawing.
