A closer look at some of our classes


Under the guidance of an experienced tutor, you will learn as a class group and individually how to develop your own drawing or painting artworks.

This class encourages you to explore your own individual style through discussion and exploration of material and subject matter.

No experience required as there will be a permanent still life setup for those who are just beginners and want to try art for the first time or who want to improve their skills.

These classes are designed to be inclusive and social and offer a great introduction
to art and for those who want to have some fun, whilst going home having learnt
something new  At the end of the course, you will have achieved the ability to use
your resource material to develop ideas through the exploration of line, value, colour mixing and composition.

What materials to bring 
A sketchbook A4 or A3 or sheets of cartridge paper Drawing pencils ranging from 2B to 6B
Charcoal, black and white conte and rubber
Your paints and palette
Wiping rags or paper towels, no wet wipes please.
Your selection of brushes.
Your selection of quality paints
A Canvas that is portable

Students who will be working on their own individualised projects need to bring their own resource materials. These include photos, A4 printouts, sketches or objects of fascination.

This class is offered as part of our Term adult program. If you would like to take the class but have missed the term dates or would like to book a group, please contact us to discuss.

The process of making art. Lessons in life.

Inspired by stained glass windows, L aged 7, has planned and created this pony painting. Taking time to arrange ideas and organise materials before realising the final art work is an important and transferable skill.  Children often rush their work because adults rush them. Let's give them time to learn and enjoy the process.  Here L has also learned about colour mixing and values, composition, brush techniques.    ...and had fun doing it.
