These intensive sessions usually take between one to two hours and can include a follow-up which is included in the price of the initial critique. Cost for individual Portfolio Surgery: £65. Please contact me below for further details or to make an appointment.

Private Tutorials.

Caro is qualified to teach up to Masters Level. In the past, she has undertaken residencies, including as a resident artist in Secondary Schools. Part of her community work has also involved running art courses for HM Prison inmates and curating public exhibitions of inmate’s work. She has also worked with vulnerable young adults from a variety of challenging backgrounds.

Caro is available for both private tutorials for individuals, as well as tuition for selected art groups. If you want to expand your practice into other exciting areas or try another medium, then I would be delighted to help you along your creative journey. Cost: Private Tutorials: £35 per hour (£60 for 2 hours). Group Tuition: £45 per hour (£85 for half day). Please don’t hesitate to contact me below with any queries you may have.

Marlborough College Summer School, 2019

New Residential Art Course No 41: Walk and Draw: Creating Visual Narratives. By artist, Caro Woods. 22nd July – 26th July, 2019.

‘This art course will sharpen your observation and drawing skills.  The tutor will guide you through the stages of transforming quick sketches and pertinent notes recorded whilst undertaking a short guided walk, into more complex art works based on your personal experience of the walk.  These walking / drawing exercises are designed to encourage you to use an intuitive and fluid expression of mark making, unhindered by individual expectations.  We will use the College grounds for preliminary exercises before embarking on an outing to Alton Barnes where we will undertake a ‘Walk and Draw’ to the White Horse hill cut figure.’
