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

All Online painting classes are hands on and are kept small to ensure individual tuition. Courses are run in 3 stages of 10 weeks each. The stages are a guide to a students progress but is often accelerated according to the students input.

Students start at the beginning and complete each Classic Block (10 to 30 weeks of classes). So in each class there are beginners and advanced students. Working with other more advanced students allows students to observe and learn faster.

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.

Students at all levels are welcome – beginner, intermediate and advanced students.

Art Classes are offered in 5, 10, 20, 30 Week Blocks- Classic 5, Classic 10, Classic 20 and Classic 30.

I recommend my Classic 30 Art Course (30 Weeks) 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 Art Classes Waiting List – Contact Ellen here
