About Ellen’s  Art School

A place to embrace your rich artistic expression, cultivate your ability, build confidence and gain knowledge of the time honoured tradition of oil painting. A place where  you will cultivate the ‘eye of the painter’, a rich and rewarding experience, that stays with you, inspires you to paint – you will see a painting in a tree, a rock, a vase, an apple, a face… Paint life as you see it and experience it…
