Monica Perez Vega

Contemporary Artist | My Life in Trees


I have over 15 years experience teaching art to all ages. I have taught in California, the Netherlands and the UK and am currently based in the West Midlands. I am available to facilitate workshops in schools and corporate settings. Whether it’s for team-building, creativity training or in response to your curriculum, I am happy to design a workshop to suit all ages, needs and abilities. DBS certified. Contact me for more details.

Balsall Heath Second Saturday is a monthly mini-festival celebrating making, creativity, community, local culture and the arts. I run a drop-in family art workshop from 11am-2pm. You can find me in the Upper Gallery at the Old Print Works. Each session is different and inspired by the seasons. Try your hand at drawing, painting, collaging, and printmaking…. Stop by, be creative and have fun.
