I provide private tuition and workshops in traditional painting and drawing in Sheffield for all skill levels and ages.


Workshops and Courses


I run short courses in realist drawing and painting in and around the city under the name Northern Realist Sheffield.

You will learn time honoured principles one at a time and develop your skills progressively. All my courses are taught in small, focused groups to allow you to work at your own level and pace whilst also learning from your fellow students. I cater for all ability levels in a supportive atmosphere. Locations for the courses and workshops vary – please see individual course listings for more details.

Teaching Approach

I will be able to help anyone seeking a stronger grounding in traditional drawing and painting techniques than is typically provided by the art faculties of contemporary schools and universities. I am happy to teach people of all levels, from beginners who haven`t picked up a paint brush in their life to experienced artists who would like to incorporate new methods into their work. While there are specific exercises and approaches which I believe all burgeoning artists should practice I am welcome to altering my approach to suit those seeking to incorporate traditional approaches into their work rather than learn a new system of drawing and painting from scratch.

Professional Experience

I have been practising as a professional visual artist for the past 8 years. My work has been exhibited in the US, UK and Australia. I have been the recipient of a number of awards, scholarships, residencies and I recently featured on Sky's Landscape Artist of the Year and Sky's Portrait Artist of the Year (you can view my complete CV here). I have extensive experience teaching workshops in traditional painting and drawing methods, tutoring privately and running online art courses.

If you think that I`d be able to help you develop as an artist please feel free to get in touch at info@kieraningram.com and we can figure out what sort of approach will work best for you.
