I’m Fiona McWilliam, the facilitator of art classes and workshops at PAS.
Portobello art school combines years of development and layers of experience from formal and informal creative environments.
Bringing a range of experiences for the learner to enjoy, experiment and develop through the multi mediums of art.
Learn NEW skills
Portobello Art School is a merging of previous art classes (MADE) and my teaching in many primary schools.
A place to learn new skills and experiment with craft and art materials.
For me, it is a great way to share fun and creative activities using a range of art materials.
I’m always learning from my students!
Classes focus on building on the basic fundamental principles of art. Using these skills as a foundation to build on to develop student’s confidence in experimenting with different artistic styles and mediums.
Classes are tailored to each individual and open to everyone.
