Individual Art Tuition

I take individual art tuition in my art studio in Leeds, I tailor make my tuition to the needs and wishes of my students.

I cover the areas: of drawing, paintings techniques using water colours, oils, pastels and coloured pencils. I offer other workshops such as collograph printing, monoprinting and more combined art techniques.

I offer a unique opportunity for people in my local community to fulfil their artistic aspirations.

Places are limited – please contact me for availability and pricing.

I had always been doubtful about my ability to paint in oil. However, I found an art tutor 2 years ago to guide me through the basics of oils, and I have her to thank for her skill, patience and enthusiasm. Thank you Miriam. Gary Crowder


Long term testimonial – Debbie Samuel

Whilst I have a background in design and teaching I sought Miriam’s help in developing my own artistic style and confidence, inspired by Miriam’s vibrant colourful work and accessible website and Miriam’s interest in organic material, she was a good choice for me as I have an inclination towards drawing and representing natural materials.

debbie samuel -- miriam lavilleI have been coming to Miriam’s art studio in Roundhay, North Leeds for about 3 years now every week or so. I have been happy to be guided by Miriam who has been imaginative in producing new projects to develop confidence and sense of artistic identity in drawing painting in mixed media and printing. Her teaching style is informal and unintimidating.

Miriam is always enthusiastic, encouraging and patient. She knows when to leave you on your own in your own artistic moments and when struggling she is quick to intervene so that the developing confidence is not impaired.

With encouragement I have started to frame some of my work and hang it on the walls of my own home. I started to take baby steps in giving small gifts of my own work to friends and with further encouragement and positive feedback I started to think about exhibiting some of my work, albeit rather shyly.

I have now successfully exhibited at a local exhibition for amateur and professional artists and have had work accepted for a local professional art event.

Miriam has been totally supportive and encouraging generous with her time and skilled. The sessions are fun and I very much look forward to coming and value Miriam’s critique and analysis of my work and find the studio a creative environment. Because she is also an active artist there are always current and new drawings and paintings on the wall to inspire making it a good environment to play, paint, draw and explore.
