WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE FOR DAVID JEWKES ART
David Jewkes is an award-winning Slade trained artist and teacher. During the first lockdown David offered free bi-weekly Facebook Live art classes to try and help people to cope with the pandemic. (These videos are still available to watch on David's YouTube channel).
It was with great pride that on a cold November evening, last year, that David was presented with this prestigious award by Falklands war hero, Simon Weston.
This award was in recognition of his work within his local community, working with other organisations to produce a 3-D Carousel light sculpture.
"I was just so pleased to able to pull this off during a global pandemic, during lockdown" said David. "I was able to offer paid work to local companies who were struggling financially during the pandemic. We also produced a beautiful piece of art which was exhibited at Lumen 2021".
David's first-love will forever be producing high quality pieces of fine art, either in his beloved oils or the modern medium of acrylics.
David's original artwork varies in size from small to large which is reflected in the price. David's work varies in price from £10 to £1,000 depending on the size and the time that it took to produce.
"My prices start so cheap because I want to offer everybody the opportunity to own a piece of original art. I would like to make an art collector out of everyone" said David with a wry smile.
IF you have always fancied trying your hand at sketching but do not know where to begin then why not join David's popular drawing class.
These short 5-week courses are held on Tuesday mornings, from 10-12pm, at the newly revamped Crewe Market Hall.
The next class begins on Tuesday 19th April, 2022.. Classes must be booked and paid for in advance.
The cost is £20 for all 5 weeks.
There is a new drawing challenge every week, so you would not be required to attend all classes but there are no refunds (unless the classes are cancelled by David himself).
To book your place, call David on 07557 446163.
Students attending the course can now buy themselves a tea & coffee from the Mini Beans Coffee Shop.
If you have seen one of David's images and have thought to yourself that would look great on a mug, as a cushion, shower curtain, phone case or on a T-shirt then make your dream come true.
David's original artwork is available on Red Bubble to have made into a variety of everyday objects.
Also, if you really like one of David's paintings but it's not within your budget 9at the moment), then why not order a canvas or poster print on Red Bubble.
Why not take a quick peek at what you could purchase on Red Bubble/davidjewkesart shop?
All purchases are good quality and will be shipped to your house (at a reasonable cost).
Where could you learn to paint like a professional artist under the tutelage of a Slade trained artist?
The answer would be at David's shop, come art studio, at the newly redeveloped Crewe Market Hall.
So, for just £10 per hour (not more than the price of one cup of coffee), you could learn a new stress-relieving hobby.
Wow friends and family alike with your finished masterpiece.
Art materials are not provided because everybody has different tastes.
(Also, once you get started you will want to continue to practice at home).
For more information, or to book ahead, call David on 07557 446163.
CREWE MP, Dr Kieran Mullan, asked me to become involved in a community art project to transform an alleyway off Walthall Street, in Crewe.
Sadly, these alleyways are now being used as dumping grounds for rubbish, causing a lot of distress to local residents.
However, with the community working together, we were able to move all of the rubbish and transform it into a beautiful, bright flower meadow. I was really happy to be able to help pull the resident's ideas together to do one finished mural.
Everyone worked hard painting the mural including Dr Kieran. The finished piece is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of anyone passing-by.
Do you have a photograph or a memory that you would like to have captured forever on canvas in either oils or acrylic?
Why not commission David to paint your idea onto canvas and forever commemorate that perfect place or memory?
Nothing says I love you better than buying a personalised piece of artwork as a unique gift. Suitable for any occasion.
"The only limitation is your imagination".
Love art but too afraid to have a go yourself...then why not pop along to one of David's many friendly art classes.
Too afraid to paint or draw in front of people then why not treat yourself to 1:1 tuition with Slade-trained David.
David runs classes in sketching, watercolour, acrylics and oils.
Most classes are held in CW1 or CW2.
Due to current social distancing restrictions, all classes are on hold for the moment but we hope to be re-starting them in July 2021.
