This new approach to art tuition entitled “Inspire, Challenge & Support” has been developed alongside Ian Murphy during his workshops and his personal practice in the studio and out on location. It is a unique, new idea that allows Ian Murphy to share his contemporary art with a wider audience. Our idea is to give everyone an “over the shoulder” access to all the incredible artistic processes that Ian Murphy uses, whilst providing a support structure of drawing, painting and printmaking material. This will heighten your confidence and in turn sharpen your skills.

Ian Murphy is extremely excited that he can now give you the opportunity to access his thought process with such ease. Whether you are a teacher, student or an art enthusiast the tips and ideas Ian Murphy shares are amazing. How often does a professional artist allow access to their secrets of success? Whatever your artistic ability Ian Murphy’s Online Art Tutorials have something for you.

Creating Great Sketchbooks

7 ideas I use in my sketchbook drawing when I am on location
I always stress the importance of my sketchbook to my creative practice - it is my constant companion whenever I travel, and it provides me the best solution to record the environment around me. I have always drawn in a sketchbook, its second nature to me, and it is one of the main things that students love to look through during my workshops. The downloadable booklet will give you an insight into the creative strategies I use when I draw in my books and hopefully it will provide you with a substantial aid to share with your students.
