Hi, my name is Melanie and I am an experienced secondary Art teacher with 18 years practice in teaching children aged 11 to 18. I have taught extensively in both independent and state schools in the Greater Manchester area and I am fully DBS certified.

Through Colour Curve I offer private art tuition for children of Junior and Secondary school ages, including GCSE and A Level Art students. I also offer adult creative workshops and have previously delivered these in a range of techniques, including: wax entrapment, batik and drawing. If you are looking for an art event for a kids party, social group, family gathering or corporate event then I offer a paint party service that can be tailored to your event’s requirements.

You can see more about me and the art I make at www.melaniehowellsart.com or on facebook @melaniehowellsart .

Why study Art?

I know from experience the real benefits that Art can bring to a child’s development and to our well-being at any stage of life. My tuition sessions and workshops will allow children or adults to develop their creativity and confidence in an encouraging and supportive environment.
