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

Private Painting Classes are one to one 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 Private Block (10 to 30 weeks of classes).  Classes are tailored to the individual student.  Private Art Classes are suitable for both beginners and advanced students. Students receive one to one tutoring and will be able to work at their own pace.

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 10, 20, 30 Week Blocks – Private 10, Private 20 and Private 30.

I recommend my Private 30 Art Course (30 Weeks) to absorb the depth of my teaching.
