“I really didn’t think I had it in me – and then I attended Kathryn’s Beginners Drawing and Sketching class and it literally changed my life. Kathryn’s not only a brilliant artist, but she’s also a fantastic teacher too. Definitely get yourself along to a class or two.”

“We have had a fabulous day, working with Kathryn Saunby Art Studio, using an artwork by Pieter de Hooch as our inspiration. Vicky and Zoe taught us different art skills, such as “wet on wet” and sgraffito using acrylic and water paints. Every child participated and created a piece for our final, whole school display to be proud of!”

Somerby Primary School

“As always impressive artwork brought home. Thanks to all involved in teaching”

Cat Mills

“Thank you for helping me find my passion in drawing again! I haven’t had a hobby in too long! You are a fantastic teacher! Again Thanks Kylie x”


“I’ve been coming to Kathryn’s for over 10 years now and my art has developed from nothing to actually selling a few of my pictures. I have moved to Nottingham but still travel here, as not only are the arts and craft brilliant, but I have made so many friends. The atmosphere is relaxed, easy, supportive and most of all fun! Wonderful studio for learning and relaxation. I’ve learnt pencil, acrylics and oils”


“Since starting art lessons with Kathryn as a complete novice, she has built my confidence and original lack of artistic ability, to enable me now to enjoy this hobby as a big part of my life. NEVER say you can’t draw! Have a go, I did! With a great teacher like Kathryn, you may surprise yourself”
