Holly Foskett-Barnes

Tutor Profile


Holly is a Bristol artist and tutor whose art is interwoven with the natural world and wellbeing practices. She enjoys weaving mindfulness, seasonality and folklore into her teaching to provide a holistic environment for artmaking. 

Nature is often brought into the classroom, as Holly creates still-life displays from seasonal foraged plants, to encourage creative observations and nature connection.

Holly loves to share her 10+ years of studio experience painting and drawing with others. Her teaching style is grounded, warm and personal, responding to everyone’s individual needs. She offers a process-based approach, which focuses on the enjoyment and richness of artmaking, rather than an outcome or product. 

Join one of her courses or workshops if you’d like to connect with your innate creativity and the natural world.
