Lori Hanson Art teacher

6 Peckfield, Ripon, Hg42sf


Painting & drawing tuition lessons for beginner students in Harrogate & Ripon.
Now accepting private tuition students aged 10+

Creativity is intelligence having fun" ~Albert Einstein

I've worked with children for over 25 years in varying subjects and capacities, and I love to invest my time and talent teaching young students who desire to explore the world of art, drawing and painting.

I teach private lessons with a maximum of two students in one session. I keep the class number low so that the students have my undivided attention, and feel safe and relaxed while learning. I focus my painting and drawing curriculum around the individual needs of each student based on what they enjoy, what they hope to accomplish at the end of the 6 week course, and based on their current skill level.

By the end of the 6 weeks my students will have a small portfolio to keep and share with their family. They will also be presented with a course certificate.

Topics most likely to be explored based on beginner or intermediate:

Caring for your art brushes
basic colour theory
intermediate colour theory
Sketching techniques
Classic artist styles
Brush strokes
essentials for landscape paintings
Beginning portraiture
Soft and hard lines
and more....

The student will finish each lesson with a fun challenge to explore and learn during the week to help build into their lessons with me.


"Lori has combined her talent of art and teaching to inspire children for several years. I found her to be enthusiastic with a well thought out curriculum, and is kind and loving towards children. I highly recommend her“ -Ami R. head of THRIVE Academy

I really enjoyed taking introduction to art with Mrs. Hanson! She taught us many new styles that I have never learned before, all while making it a fun and inspirational class! I’m thankful that my siblings and I had the chance to take her class!” - Cassidy, age 16

"Lori is a creative mind and it was a privilege to have her teach my boys. They came home with so many wonderful pieces of art. She is patient and loving as she works with young people.
She inspires them to be creative and LOVE what they create."
- Johanna, mom to boys ages 10 & 12
