portfolio development

suitable for ages 14 and up


A week of one day workshops to introduce the methods and tools that can help build a portfolio of work. During the week you will be taken through daily exercises and short projects to inspire new ways of thinking and working. Each day will focus on a different area of study and topics covered will include drawing, painting, collage, mixed media and 3D. Using basic materials, everyday items and a mobile phone we will make an interesting and individual body of work to add to your portfolio.


£180 for the week – includes all materials, plus a drink and a snack. Please bring a packed lunch.


All classes are held at my studio;

Studio 48, at The Matrix, 62-66 Newhaven Road, Edinburgh, EH6 5QB.


The classes are small so early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.

Studio 48 is located on Newhaven Road. All classes are taught by me, Sally-Ann Johns, in my working studio. My passion is encouraging young artists in a supportive and friendly environment. I have been working in the arts for 20 years, from making and selling pieces to exhibiting internationally, and have for the last 8 years been running my own classes and workshops. From young and old, beginners to aspiring art college graduates, an art education is possible for all types of people. I am a member of the Scottish Artist Union, PVG disclosed and Public Liability Insured. My classes are small for a more personal and individual level of learning.

I send out the odd update with information about new classes. Follow me on social media to see photos of the children's work.
