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.

About Art Classes

Classes are offered in 3 x 10 week blocks. Students at all levels are welcome – beginner, intermediate and advanced students.

Students start at the beginning – Block 1 (10 classes). So in each class there are beginners and advanced students. Working with other more advanced students allows students to observe and learn faster.

Teaching is based on where the student is at. The levels – beginner, intermediate and advanced – are a guide to a student’s progress, but are often accelerated according to the students input.

Classes are kept small to allow the one to one attention each student requires.

Demonstrations are conducted during each 10 Week Block to empower students with in-depth and valuable knowledge, skills and techniques.

I recommend my full 30 week course to absorb the depth of my teaching.

You can join in any class with an available space. You will be advised if your preferred class time is not available. You have the option to join another class while you wait for an opening or you can add your name to our classes waiting list

Please note: it is possible to reschedule up to 3 classes, as long as notice is provided.
