Hugh / About

Hugh at his Charity Exhibition & sale of paintings. Manchester’s Historic buildings.

In the 1890’s my great great grandparents Robert & Elizabeth Templeton founded a travelling music hall theatre called ‘Templeton’s Varieties.’

After studying Art Education at Manchester, and inspired by them, I decided to re-create something similar and founded ‘Hugh Templeton Training.’ Designed to bring the knowledge & skills of traditional watercolour painting to adults & children, in an educational but entertaining way, through my travelling workshops.

Teaching Art has taken me around the UK, to the USA, Istanbul, and even aboard the QE2.

Art has always been a therapy and salvation for me, and I hope by sharing it I can help others to enjoy it as much as I do.
