Mouth and Foot Painting Artists

Our 'Learn To Paint' series

Looking to be inspired or even to learn a new skill? Our Mouth and Foot Painting artists are here to help, with our new ‘Learn To Paint’ series.

Follow along as our artists teach you how they paint without the use of their hands, due to physical disability. Learn their artistic techniques, and even try it yourself as they do – with your mouth or feet – if you’re brave enough!

To make it as easy as possible for all abilities to follow along – particularly if you want to try painting with your mouth – some of our artists have provided a design outline to help get you started. Don’t worry if you don’t have a painting set at home, we stock them in our online shop here
